Members of the California Retired Teacher Association (CalRTA) Division 4 awarded 13 local high school seniors $1,500 scholarships at an awards luncheon June 1, including Brenden Zounes of Point Loma High School. 

The Scholarship Foundation of CalRTA was established 30 years ago. Division 4 has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to more than 300 seniors planning to attend four-year universities.

High school seniors were judged on their academic achievement, school leadership, extracurricular activities, community/volunteer service, financial need and work/home activities.

The scholarship recipients have an grade-point average of 3.90 and will be attending UCLA, UCSD, UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley. Their diverse areas of study include bio-engineering, neurosciences, chemistry, psychology and teaching.

CalRTA members said they are proud of their scholarship program that recognizes deserving, hard-working, and intelligent young people.

Donations may be made to: CalRTA Scholarship Foundation, Division 4, P.O. Box 33421, San Diego,  92163-3421.
