Annual Scholarship Drive | Pacific Palisades

The board shared that it works closely with the school’s College Center to select students who have the potential to become productive citizens, many of which travel great distances to reach the campus.
“The COVID virus has caused a huge disruption to every aspect of our lives,” members shared in a statement. “Schools are closed and students are learning from home as best as they can.”
