CEF Awards $50,000 In College Scholarships

by The Editors on June 3, 2022

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation awarded 11 scholarships totaling $50,000 to seniors from the Carlsbad Unified School District (CUSD) who best demonstrated how an education in the public schools paved the way for them to further their education at a leading university or college. Carlsbad High School’s Josephine Dominguez (pictured above with Jeff Campbell and Laura Pitts) took top honors with the $15,000 Judith Campbell Educational & Community Foundation scholarship. 

“These outstanding students have not only found their passion but have also embraced the opportunities presented to them. We are thrilled to help them pursue the next steps in their education,” said Chief Executive Officer Laura Pitts. . . $50,000 is the highest amount ever awarded in senior scholarships from Carlsbad Educational Foundation in a single year since the awards were established in 2016. Half of the scholarship funding was provided in partnership with the Judith Campbell Educational & Community Foundation, a new nonprofit that helps high school students and grants to charitable organizations in San Diego County. Two scholarships were sponsored by Viasat and awarded to Science Olympiad participants.
