Over 90 students, either beginning or continuing their post-secondary education and reside in HACLA and Community Safety Partnership (CSP) communities in the City of Los Angeles, were awarded $134,250 in scholarships to support their academic success. Some of the schools the students will be (or are currently) attending include: UC Berkeley, UCLA, Yale, Spelman College, Morehouse College, San Francisco State, and various California State Universities. The event was well attended by students, families, sponsors and colleagues and included two surprise messages from the LA Dodgers and LA Rams celebrating the scholars’ accomplishments.
