Yorba Linda Woman’s Club ~ 2016 Scholarships & Awards
In 1961, the Yorba Linda Woman's Club gave their first scholarships by awarding two local students $50 each. This year five judges carefully reviewed over 50 applications from students who reside in the Placentia Yorba Linda School District. Six students were selected based on both their outstanding personal and scholastic achievements and their service to others. These students are ambitious role models who exemplify the values of the Yorba Linda Woman's Club.
This year, through our profits of fundraising including our Fall and Spring Craft Faires, we awarded six $2,000 academic & vocational scholarships and $5,000 in other art award prizes to the following:
