Friday, June 17th, San Diego


Over a million dollars worth of scholarships were announced last night in a ceremony in the Point Loma High School Gymnasium.  Representative of local organizations recognized student achievements in academic, athletic, and community participation.  Included for the first time, were students who announced the amount of academic or athletic scholarships awarded from schools they planned to attend.

The Class of 1966 Pointer Sisters and Brothers selected nine more students, and were pleased to see them selected for numerous other awards.  In one of the most touching moments of the evening, Judy Hagar Schon, mentioning that the Pointer Sisters had been meeting monthly after 50 years in social gatherings, said "Remember that you can all stay friends even after all these years".  

Acknowledging the academic quality and highest standards exhibited by the Sister and Brother awardees, John Davis, presenter for the Pointer Brothers said, “Our folks were recognized by lots of others as among the best.”

John and Judy Hagar Schon, 1966 recipients of the Class Citizenship Award, also gave out the award to this year’s selections.  To each of the two recipients, they provided a $500 scholarship in honor of the upcoming 50th Reunion of the 1966 Class on September 17th at the Southwestern Yacht Club.
