Five seniors from Rancho Buena Vista High School were recently awarded Salute to Education scholarships from San Diego County Ford Dealers. The seniors who were chosen for this honor were: Martin Caudillo for social science, Iris Pena for performing arts, Ann Pham for medical, Brenda Villafana for foreign language, and Kaitlyn Zorilla for athletics. Over 150 seniors from high schools throughout San Diego County were honored at a ceremony at the San Diego Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park. Scholarship recipients are selected for their personal achievements and contributions to their communities and schools. While academic achievement is considered, it is not the determining factor. The San Diego County Salute to Education program has awarded $2.9 million dollars to local high school seniors. Thirteen of the the scholarship recipients also received new Ford vehicles.
