Several local businesses and students were recognized recently by the Solano Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Totaling about $7,500, the chamber distributed scholarships to six Solano County students for their respective efforts to improve the local community.
The scholarships went to Monica Medina and Matthew Lewis, both of Vanden High School; Audrey Moore of the University of Southern California; Kaleb Hernandez of the University of California, Davis, and Madelyn Garcia and Diana DeVore, both of Touro University California.
“Each of our scholarship winners has also demonstrated a clear commitment to improving their communities. They are future leaders and individuals with commitment and drive,” said Andrea Garcia, President of the Solano Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, in a chamber press release. “We are pleased to award the scholarships and support their pursuit of education and exploration of career paths.”
