Assistance League of Newport-Mesa Awards $28,000 in Scholarships to Newport-Mesa Students
Assistance League of Newport-Mesa has a strong tradition of providing scholarships to the community. The first college scholarship was awarded in 1945 and seven decades later the tradition continues. Fourteen (14) students from Newport-Mesa High Schools were chosen to each receive a $2,000 scholarship for their higher education pursuits. Scholarships were awarded on a combination of personal need, activities in school and the community as well as grade point average.
