Continuing our long-standing tradition of awarding higher education financial assistance, METRO is pleased to announce the recipients of our 2018 College Scholarship Awards! The METRO Scholarship Committee selected this year’s scholars from high school senior applicants, throughout San Diego County, on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, community service, extracurricular activities, financial need, and letters of recommendation.
The competition this year was extremely tight. The four exceptional students listed below were selected for their academic accomplishments, leadership, commitment to public service, and desire to make a difference within their communities and the world.
