By Tony Aiello

La Mirada~The Kiwanis Club of La Mirada presented scholarship awards to two El Camino High School seniors.
The students were presented with their gifts at a ceremony this past Thursday at the school.
They were joined by La Mirada Kiwanis members Lou Piltz, Tom Thornton, and Rich Trujillo, along with El Camino principal Darryl Brown and other local dignitaries.
Located in La Mirada, El Camino is a California State Model Continuation High School.
Students were judged on their merit, grades, school activity; along with their community involvement and accomplishments.
This year’s winners-which included La Mirada high students-received scholarship amounts totally $11,000, with 14 students overall, receiving gifts.
Scholarship amounts are awarded in the amounts of $500 and $1000.
At El Camino, Courtney Morrison and Zaraya Silva each received $1000.
La Mirada High students received their prizes earlier in the week.
For over 30 years, the service club has offered the scholarships. To qualify, students must reside in La Mirada, but can be attending any high school.
The Kiwanis meet every Wednesday at 7:15 am at Holiday Inn Select 14299 Firestone Blvd., La Mirada, and the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Volunteer Center 11900 La Mirada Blvd. Suite 5, La Mirada.
