The first Jacob Fine Memorial Scholarship will be awarded May 2 at Ponderosa High School’s Scholarship Night.
Fine attended Ponderosa High School from 2002 to 06. He generously served his school as a commissioner, in student leadership and on the snowboard team.
He brought humor and creative gifts to the classroom and was known as a friend to all and a person who reached out to help others.
During college Fine served as a foster parent.
To honor his life, this $500 scholarship will be given to a graduating senior at Ponderosa High School who is pursuing goals of higher education and service to others. Special consideration will be given to foster youth.
The scholarship application is online at calocalscholarships.org/. Information can also be obtained from the career center at Ponderosa High School.
