LAKEPORT, Calif. – Twelve Lake County students received the Mendocino College Foundation’s Adopt a Fifth Grader Award in 2019.

This annual program is designed to motivate young students to graduate from high school and attend college.

Representatives from the Lake County Friends of Mendocino College and program donors attended each adopted school’s awards ceremony and presented recipients with a $25 check and a certificate stating that a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded when the student obtains a high school diploma and enrolls at Mendocino College.

If the student earns a high school diploma but does not enroll at Mendocino College, he or she will receive a $500 award.

This program is made possible due to the generous support of many businesses and community members.

The 2019 donors include Kelseyville Sunrise Rotary, Mendocino College Management Supervisory Confidential Employee Group, United Veteran’s Council, North Shore Business Association, Mendocino College Board of Trustees, Rotary Club of Lakeport, Community First Credit Union, Mendocino College Foundation, Lake County Friends of Mendocino College and Jo Ann Morgan and Susan Stout.
