New Scholarship Announced

This year, AEF announced a new scholarship. It is called the Getty George Community Service Scholarship. This is truly an exciting opportunity for AEF to honor graduating seniors who have given their time to help others in our community.

 

 

It is named after Getty George who has faithfully served/volunteered in the Alvord Unified School District for 40 years. He has:
• Actively participated in Norte Vista and La Sierra Booster Clubs
• Coached football, basketball and golf is AUSD schools
• Helped secure Bond Funding to build schools for our students
• Helped lead a committee to secure funding and build our Alvord District Stadium
• Elected to the Riverside Sports Hall of Fame
• Served as an Alvord Educational Foundation Officer for 15 years raising funds for teacher grants and students scholarships
Each year AEF will accept applications from AUSD graduating seniors. The decision criteria will be primarily based on Community Service. Each year one (1) $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a top student who has volunteered his/her time to help others in our community. The 2015 recipient of the Getty George Community Service Scholarship was Sunny Singh of Norte Vista High School.
