Bowman High students receive scholarships

Four Bowman High School seniors were honored with the sixth annual ACTION Parent and Teen Support Group Program scholarships on May 22.

The students who received the $500 scholarships were: Adam Lutz, Brooke Farber, Alexis Huling and Ivan Mishler. Lutz, Mishler and Huling plan to attend College of the Canyons, and Farber plans to attend Moorpark College.

According to Cary Quashen, founder and president of the parent and teen support group program, the scholarships provide funds for students entering a community college, university or vocational education program in fall 2011.

Funds for this year’s scholarship program were donated by parents and teens who attend the parent and teen support group program and Quashen.

“Many often believe that teens who attend an alternative high school or a continuation type of high school are not good scholars or are not academically astute to earn a scholarship,” Quashen said.

“At ACTION, we know different. We know there are teens who make bad decisions and as a result sometimes their schoolwork suffers from the bad decisions they make.

“The students who were chosen for the ACTION scholarships were chosen because they made a conscientious effort to work on their personal problems, as well their academic standing to graduate high school.”

While this is the sixth year, ACTION has provided scholarships for local Santa Clarita Valley students, the ACTION scholarship program began in the Simi Valley area, where Quashen also runs a parent and teen support group program.

Locally, Quashen has given more than $16,000 in scholarships to the community.
