I am reaching out to principals/guidance counselors/school administrative staff at schools in the Pasadena area, so if there is a better point of contact for me to forward this information to to get the word out to interested students, please do let me know and I will gladly forward the information to them. I would also love to send physical copies of the scholarship flyer to any interested schools to distribute to students, so if you would like to provide a mailing address for that, I can send those over as well. Thank you so much!
