Award Encourages Students to Graduate from High School and Attend Mendocino College
Fourteen Lake County students received the Mendocino College Foundation’s Adopt a Fifth Grader Award in 2016. This annual program is designed to motivate young students to graduate from high school and attend college.
Representatives from the Lake County Friends of Mendocino College (LCFMC) and program donors attended each adopted school’s awards ceremony and presented recipients with a $25 check and a certificate stating that a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded when the student obtains a high school diploma and enrolls at Mendocino College. If the student earns a high school diploma but does not enroll at Mendocino College, he or she will receive a $500 award.
This program is made possible due to the generous support of many businesses and community members. Our 2016 donors include Kelseyville Sunrise Rotary, Mendocino College Management Supervisory Confidential Employee Group, Mendocino College Trustees, Northshore Business Association, Mendo Lake Credit Union, Mark & Kathy Smith, Lakeport Rotary, Mendocino College Foundation, Lake County Friends of Mendocino College, and Judy Conard.
