Maya Gurrola and Daniel Ochoa Castillo were recognized as the 2018 Mesa West Rotary scholarship recipients at the Westwood High School presentation held Thursday, May 17.  Maya was not present at the recognition event.

 Mesa West member, Andrea Murphy, has been the Westwood Interact faculty advisor for many years.  She is on Westwood's scholarship committee and sees all of the students who have applied for and received scholarships.  

The ideal student for our Mesa West scholarships is one that has good grades, but is not at the top of their class (with a plethora of other scholarships already lined up).  Our recipients should be very service minded and of good character.  There must be a clear financial need.  The Mesa West Foundation checks presented by Chuck Flint are payable to the college or university each of the students plan to attend.
