In spite of its old age — 64 years since its founding, the Patrons Club of Glendale Community College keeps right on giving. Members raised $28,000 in the past year to give 36 scholarships and 30 grants-in-aid to deserving students. Those were awarded May 19 at the club’s annual Scholarship Luncheon on campus.
Club President Betty Musacco welcomed her audience and announced that every student interviewed by members of the scholarship committee received a scholarship. Those scholarships ranged between $400 to $1,000. Also giving a quick welcome were co-scholarship chairwomen Judy Gorham and Karen Wharton. College Supt./President Dawn Lindsay introduced club advisor and Dean of Student Affairs Paul Schlossman, who said the college gives an additional 500 to 600 scholarships annually.
The scholarships were awarded during a fast-paced one hour. Former college Supt./President John Davitt awarded the most scholarships. His four scholarship recipients were Anna Engstrom, Aram Gambourian, Jhonna Lamur and Gina Song. Gayle Davitt applauded her husband’s honorees.
