With their parents watching, both students were presented with a Certificate of Recognition and a $100 scholarship award by program chair Dr. Augie Adrid, and club president Ira Sherman.
Both Matteo and Colette then thanked the club and shared some comments about their current school and community activities as well as their ambitions for the future.
She stressed the importance of nominating students who not only are strong academic performers, but also students who have successfully faced obstacles in their personal lives and who routinely serve others and volunteer their time.
