Ten Redwood City high school students will start their first year of college in the fall with a little help from the Kiwanis Club.

The Woodside Terrace A.M. Kiwanis Club recently announced its scholarship winners for 2018 in a Bay City News report, with a total of $14,500 going to the ten students.  The winners will be honored at the Club’s annual Scholarship Dinner, Monday, May 21.

Angela Khov was awarded the Key Club of Sequoia High scholarship.  Teresa Najera of Woodside High received the Geri Mayers Memorial Community Service Award, and Kaitlin Raynor, also a Woodside student, received the Charles and Jean Rigg Scholarship.

Clara MacAvoy and Alejandra Sanchez-Castro of Sequoia High School received Yamada Family Scholarships.

Luis Espino Cervantes, Maya Gotthard, Jessica Morales, Juan Osorio de Jesus and Laurent Sterns all received Woodside Terrace A.M. Kiwanis Achievement Awards.

The Club’s scholarship program began about 30 years, when Phil Wang, a long-time member put up $5,000 a year to help local students afford college.  Over the years, other members and club sponsors have contributed additional funds.
