PHOTO HIGHLIGHT: Caltrans Awards Adopt-a-School Scholarship
Caltrans awarded 17-year-old Cesar Arambula a $500 Adopt-a-School Scholarship at District 7 Headquarters on June 30. Arambula is the 6th recipient of this annual scholarship, which is given to an outstanding high school senior who has participated in Caltrans’ Business Transportation Academy Program.
Arambula -- who will attend California State University, Northridge, in the fall -- is a recent graduate of Franklin High School, one of two high schools Caltrans has adopted through the Adopt-a-School Program (the other is Wilson High School). The program recruits Caltrans engineers to mentor students who are interested in the field of engineering.
