Scholarships Available for Graduating Seniors
Giving back to the community is part of what the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce does for the local community. Not only are our local businesses important to our city, but the residents and the schools are as well. That is why we believe in giving back to the community and our students by offering scholarships. We award our scholarships to students who are heavily involved in the community and are giving back to it. When we see students who are participating in organizations and volunteering to make our community stronger, we want to reward them. To do this, we will be raising funds at our 18th Annual Golf Classic and Scholarship Fundraiser on Thursday May 15 at Verdugo Hills Golf Course. It is always a fun time and you are invited to join us. We will have food from local Montrose restaurants, a scholarship awards ceremony for the recipients, video highlights from past scholarship winners and a great day of golf in a beautiful setting at the Verdugo Hills Golf Course. This is all included in the $50 entry fee. You can sign up as an individual or you can bring a team. We also have sponsorships available. This is a chance to promote your business and help support local students at the same time. Please contact the chamber office for information about our golf tournament and help support our graduating seniors.
