2 remarkable Pleasanton seniors earn Community of Character scholarships

Pleasanton's Community of Character Coalition has chosen two remarkable high school students as recipients of Juanita Haugen memorial scholarships for 2014. Alice Deng from Amador Valley High School and Diane Hadley from Foothill, who are in this year's graduating classes, were chosen for exemplifying the six Community of Character standards of compassion, honesty, respect, responsibility, integrity and self-discipline. These characteristics were adopted by the Pleasanton school district, the city government and the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce with scholarship awards given each year to honor the memory of Juanita Haugen, founder of the coalition, who died in 2007. Haugen was a former Pleasanton school board president and at one time also president of the California School Boards Association.
