Scholarships Awarded to High School Seniors

Assistance League® of Orange has awarded 28 scholarships to outstanding local high school seniors pursuing higher education in the fall.  The 2023 recipients will receive funds to be used for tuition and books. The scholars were invited to a luncheon in their honor May 5 and many of them spoke about their high school experiences and future plans, from careers in healthcare, scientific fields, criminal justice and environmental studies, to teaching, finance and the arts.
