Hartnell College Graduate Wins CSUMB Scholarship

June 21, 2002

Belia H. Garcia-Navarro of Salinas-who graduated from Hartnell College last month at the top of her class-has won a $1,500 scholarship to attend California State University, Monterey Bay, in the fall.

She will major in liberal studies at CSUMB and would like to become a high school or community college educator.

One of three valedictorians at Hartnell's recent commencement exercise, Garcia-Navarro-the mother of two teen-agers-worked full-time as an administrative assistant at the Alisal School District while attending Hartnell.

The scholarship is designed to promote access to local area students interested in attending CSUMB.
