Testimonies from some of the past award winners…….

“Dear Mayor Ward: Thank you for honoring me with the Youth Recognition Award this past week. It was humbling to be chosen out of such a large group of applicants. The money will be a great help in supporting some of the costs of college. I would also like to thank all the contributors who made this scholarship possible. I can assure you that I will continue my service to the communtiy. Sincerely, Jason K. Jones”
2010 Manhattan Beach Youth Recognition Award scholar.

“Dear Mayor Ward: Thank you for giving me the Youth Recognition Award. I’m not used to receiving plaques, or having people remember what I wrote. It really meant a lot to me that you knew what I wrote about and my honors…I also enjoyed getting to meet and personally thank each of my sponsors. It is rare that I get to actually see who is helping me. I’m very thankful that you convinced your council to start this scholarship, because it is already very helpful for me on my college education at U Penn. Thanks again for your honest interest in seeing me succeed. Sincerely, Taylor Mills” 2010 Manhattan Beach Youth Recognition Award scholar.
