Foothill High Students Awarded Rotary North Scholarships

Original post made by Jim Brice, Downtown, on Jun 26, 2021

Reflecting their outstanding academic performance, school activities and community service, three graduating seniors from Pleasanton Foothill High School have been awarded $1000 memorial scholarships from Pleasanton North Rotary.

Allison Lourenco received the club’s annual Chuck Pickens Memorial Scholarship, in part, for her volunteer community services with Amador Valley Assistance League, Culinary Angels, Diablo Day Camp, Girl Scouts, Sunflower Hill Gardens, and the Stable Cafe.

Aubrey Kim was awarded the annual Robin Barnett Memorial Scholarship in recognition of her volunteer efforts on behalf of youth-oriented programs, such as the Light and Salt Bible Studies Ministry, the Mariachi Music Program, and Empowering Youth in Business. With onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kim also helped organize the Design Pact, a student group that used their computer skills to help small businesses shift from physical to a virtual online presence.

PNR’s third scholarship was established in memory of Stephen Parker, a 1978 graduate of Foothill and son and brother of PNR past presidents Jack and Dave Parker, respectively. It was awarded this year to Alyssa Lam. Her long list of community service activities includes volunteering with a Cambodia Medical Mission, Destination Imagination, Girl Scouts, Pink Dot Club (which encourages students to join Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Registry), Safe Haven Club, and Students for Social Change.

Each year, PNR awards scholarships to Foothill High School graduating seniors, recognizing their service to the community, school involvement and academic achievements. One of the commendable characteristics these students have developed is sparing time in their busy schedules to give back to their communities. They exemplify the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self and demonstrate the notion of “Humanity in Motion,” another important Rotary theme.
