LOS ANGELES - July 9, 2021 - PRLog -- The Shops at Montebello, managed by Southern California-based Pacific Retail Capital Partners, awarded $12,000 in college scholarships to twelve local high school seniors in recognition of their outstanding achievements. Recipients include Daniel Meneses of Schurr High School, Emily Chen of Schurr High School, Jennyfer Perez of Applied Technology Center, Katherine Alvarado of Schurr High School, Kevin Palacios of Schurr High School, Mariam Fhami of Schurr High School, Melissa Ochoa of Bell Gardens High School, Monica Min of Schurr High School, Natasha Young of Schurr High School, Reyna Rodriguez of Bell Gardens High School, Tiffany Ngan of Schurr High School, and Valerie Martinez of Montebello High School.

The Shops at Montebello's Scholarship Awards recognize local seniors in their pursuit to continue their higher education and has awarded more than $84,000 to recipients in the previous seven years. Supporting youth has been part of the center's mission dating back to 1985 when the center opened. Programs like the scholarship program aim to assist local students in recognizing their educational goals and to provide initial monetary support to attain those goals. It is open to seniors at Montebello Unified School District High Schools including Applied Technology Center (ATC) High School, Bell Gardens High School, Montebello High School, and Schurr High School.

"It is one of the highlights of my year to recognize these hardworking students through our scholarship program," says Marina Satoafaiga, Marketing and Business Development Manager at The Shops at Montebello. "It is important now more than ever that we support our local community as many families are still facing financial instability due to COVID-19."

Candidates applying for the scholarship program were evaluated on criteria including a combination of outstanding academic accomplishments, participation in school activities and clubs and community volunteer work. They must also possess a financial need, demonstrate a commitment to continuing their education and detail how The Shops at Montebello plays a role in their community. Candidates are also asked to explain three elements they would like to see at the shopping center (i.e., programs, potential tenants, etc.) in the future.
