KELSEYVILLE, Calif. — This year’s recipients of the J. Fletcher and Anne Elliott Educational Scholarship awarded last month at Kelseyville High School are seniors Fermin Mendoza and Victor Sepulveda.

This year’s award is $10,000 to each recipient.

Mendoza and Sepulveda both have outstanding academic and athletic high school careers.

Both ranked high in their class. And both had exemplary athletic success through their high school years with Mendoza being a soccer fanatic, and Sepulveda playing soccer, football and tennis.

Mendoza is going to Mendocino Community College and then to Sonoma State with a goal to receive a B.S. in biochemistry while pursuing a professional soccer career.

Sepulveda is going to California Polytechnic State University, majoring in biology and pursuing a career in the medical field.

“This scholarship will help my family financially and relieve the stress of working and studying at the same time,” Mendoza said.

“This takes a big burden off my shoulders, and hopefully I will be able to study more,” Sepulveda said.

This scholarship foundation was originally established by the late Anne Elliott with the help of Rian Sommerfield at Nestegg Investment Consulting and is expected to fund future scholarships for many years to come in memory of her husband J. Fletcher.
