Video: Paso Robles class of 2020 receives $228,000 in local scholarships
–Thursday night, in replacement of the traditional scholarship night typically hosted by Paso Robles High School at the Gil Asa Gym, a virtual scholarship night video was sent out to our community via social media and email. Numerous grantors sent in videos to announce their scholarships, and the PRJUSD staff hosted the 45-minute video extravaganza.
Similar to years past, the community support was extremely generous, coming in at just over a quarter of a million dollars for our Class of 2020 Bearcats. This generosity is especially appreciated during these grave economic times.
The school district sends a ‘thank you’ to the following grantors:
Martin Luther King Jr., Elizabeth Hartsell Hopper, Lion’s Club, William F.
