The Patrons Club of Glendale Community College held a luncheon for its scholarship recipients on May 21 at the First Congregational Church of Glendale, hosted by the Culinary Arts Department.
This year, the Patrons Club awarded 28 scholarships and numerous grants-in-aid to deserving students. Funds for these scholarships are generated from the yearly fashion show and silent auction, which this year will be held on Nov. 6 at the Castaway Restaurant in Burbank.
Superintendent/President Dr. David Viar welcomed the scholarship winners and congratulated the students for their academic accomplishments at the college. Gael Davitt presented the John A. Davitt Scholarship. Pictured here, from left to right: Reef Oldberg, Sheila Araji, Sophie Mirzaian, Gael Davitt, Edwin DerSookiassian
