The 2016 Rossmoor Homeowners Association High School Scholarship Awards were hotly contested with 18 applicants submitting their entries for our judges to review and discuss. It’s critical to remember, each applicant’s household must be a current member of the RHA to be eligible for the scholarship awards.
This year two bright and talented your ladies, Josie Pearce and Olivia Wissa took the Awards with their outstanding commitment to their community, well composed essay, and of course scholastic merit.
Congratulations to our 2016 Rossmoor Homeowners Association Scholarship Award recipients. Well done!
