The class of 2022 received more than $1 million in scholarships on May 9 during its awards ceremony at the California Performing Arts Center. California High School counselor Heather Martin said the school recognized 60 students who received at least one award or scholarship.

The total amount of funds given to students included money from local and individual scholarships as well as scholarships awarded by universities.

Martin thanked the California community for its service in assisting CHS seniors. She said locals raised $100,000 in scholarship money by participating in fundraisers, giving local organizations the ability to continue providing scholarships to students.

Martin told the Democrat it was wonderful to see so many students recognized for their achievements. She said Scholarship Night displayed students' hard work, leadership skills, character and involvement in academics, athletics and organizations.

CHS counselor Rebecca Maher said she was impressed with students' ability to balance their work between traditional school work, extracurriculars and other activities.

"It is very overwhelming for them to not only be dealing with senior-level classes and college applications and activities and work and all the stuff they're involved in," Maher said. "So the fact that they took the time to do this for themselves, I think it tells a lot about them. That they have that work ethic. I'm just proud of them for going through the process, and it paid off."
