June 13, 2002

Thanks to the Fiesta Day Committee of the California Rodeo, six Hartnell College students have been awarded $1,000 scholarships.

They are either incoming freshmen who will begin their studies in August, currently enrolled Hartnell students, or Hartnell students who are transferring to a four-year college university this fall.

The winners are:
Danielle Anderson of Castroville, who is transferring this fall from Hartnell to the University of California, Santa Cruz, where she will major in film and digital media;

Joshua Burnett of Salinas, a graduate of North Salinas High School who will begin his studies at Hartnell this fall;

Santiago Garcia of Moss Landing, currently employed as drafter for a local architectural group who will attend Hartnell this year;

Daniel Mejia of Salinas, a graduate of North Salinas High School, who will begin at Hartnell in August and plans to transfer to California State University, Sacramento, where he will major in criminal justice administration.

Jennifer Spano of Salinas, who will be a second-year student at Hartnell this year and plans to transfer to Sonoma State University or the University of San Francisco to pursue a career in nursing.

Gonzalo Saavedro of Salinas, who will continue his studies at Hartnell this year and plans to transfer to the University of California, Davis, to pursue a medical career.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic promise and financial need, according to Manuel Romero, chair of the Fiesta Day Committee-the group that organizes the Day of the Family, a community festival scheduled for July 7 this year.
