Thirty-eight Students Awarded at Largest SCE Scholarship Event, Color Your Future

SCE's annual scholarship awards luncheon Color Your Future took place on May 12, 2017. Thirty-eight scholarship award recipients had an opportunity to meet with their donors and share their plans on applying the funds to further their education. We were pleased to hear that at least 12 recipients plan to continue their education at Cypress College or Fullerton College. It was especially exciting to welcome Chancellor Emeritus Dr. Ned Doffoney and to introduce him to this year's recipient of the Courage Award, which was established by Dr. Doffoney at his retirement celebration. Thank you to SCE Provost Emeritus Christine Terry and Trustee Jackie Rodarte for also attending and for their continuous support of the SCE Scholarship Program and to Chancellor Dr. Cheryl Marshall, Vice Chancellor of Finance and Facilities Fred Williams, and Cypress College President Dr. Bob Simpson for attending the luncheon.
