Teens Awarded Scholarships at the State Capitol

About 20 Valley high school students were awarded scholarships at the state capitol. They were among the more than 150 seniors who won one thousand dollars scholarships from Comcast. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O-Connell was among the speakers at Wednesday's ceremony. The "Leaders and Achievers" program is intended to recognize leadership skills, academic achievement and community service.

One Bullard High School senior says he learned a lot from volunteering. Ward volunteered some of his lunch hours at a local retirement home, was active with the Bullard basketball team, and a member of the leadership class at school. He plans on attending Fresno State in the fall.

18 other Valley students came home with scholarships.
