Police league awards scholarshipsThe Atherton Police Activities League has awarded scholarships of $5,000 each to three graduating seniors who attend schools in Atherton.
Maya Combs of Sacred Heart Preparatory, John Holland-McCowan of Menlo School, and Gabriella Meffert of Menlo-Atherton High School were selected from a pool of 37 applicants based on their academic achievements, community involvement, and the strength of their personal statements.
Eligibility requirements also included a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher and enrollment in a college or university for the fall of 2011, said Jennifer Few, a spokesperson for the Atherton Police Activities League.
"All the money we receive is through donations, so our main goal is to give back to the community," she said.
