G raduation time is always fun, and it is so inspirational to watch and hear the students talk about their future goals. The Glendale Kiwanis Club for many years has recognized graduating students and given scholarships to help them reach their next goals. This year, the Kiwanis Club gave eight students each a $2,500 scholarship. Selecting those students from the many very qualified scholarship applicants was certainly no easy job for the Kiwanis scholarship committee. The committee interviewed and reviewed student scholarship applications from five area high schools and Glendale Community College before making the decision.

Mark R. Madler The red-covered programs given out at the John Burroughs High School graduation came in handy for more than just looking up graduates' names and honors. More than 1,000 people on the stadium bleachers used the programs to shield their eyes from the brightness of the setting sun as they scouted for relatives and friends in the mass of graduates. The group that came to see Jessica Barraza graduate spotted her, called out her name and received a wave in return.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN I have very little time in my life to read for pleasure, but it happens to be one of my favorite ways to relax. When a bad case of bronchitis recently sent me to bed on doctor's orders, I was able to read a novel by one of my favorite Christian authors, Karen Kingsbury, titled "Oceans Apart." In this story, a happily married pilot makes the mistake of committing adultery seven years prior to where the story begins. This man happens to be a Christian, and not the cheating type, so he is disgusted by his mistake and consequently withholds the truth from his wife.

Darleene Barrientos A trip to Washington, D.C., to attend a youth leadership forum on medicine cost Meagan Decker and her family nearly $3,000. But the memories and the experiences the 16-year-old La Crescenta girl got in exchange are priceless. "It was really expensive, but it was totally worth it," Meagan said. "I had such a good time. I would do it again." A student at Immaculate Heart High School, a Los Angeles- based private school for girls, Meagan always had medicine in mind when it came to choosing a career, especially since her mother, Margaret, is a nurse.

Good news for you future doctors out there who happen to suffer from dyslexia. In November, a judge in Alameda County ruled that those who wish to become doctors and are unfortunate enough to suffer from a learning disability can get more time to take the admissions test for medical school. There is some speculation that this ruling will affect law school entrance exams as well, if it is upheld on appeal. This case involves the Assn. of American Medical Colleges and a group of plaintiffs who suffer from learning disabilities.

I'd love to tell the story of your mother today. But I don't know her. So, I'll tell you about mine. She's a pretty typical mom. Darlene is a wife, career educator, retiree, volunteer and the epitome of a grandmother. She's a mom in the truest sense of the word. The only child to Cecil and Wilhemina, Darlene was born during the Great Depression. Her parents struggled to make sure their daughter would have more than they did. They sent her to college where she became a teacher, the only job she ever wanted.

Ellsworth Wareham is 95 and all too familiar with heart surgery, although not as a patient. The nonagenarian regularly assists with operations at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and is considering retirement. Just considering though, he says. Wareham says he feels great and enjoys his more than 60-mile commute from Loma Linda whenever he participates in operations. His longevity and good health have been the topic of discussion in a book, “The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest,” and a feature film, “How to Live Forever.
