The sextet, who attended with family and friends, were among eight Madera County students recently awarded $500 scholarships by the club. They were interviewed about their accomplishments during the Thursday gathering.


Fresno State University Professor Gina Wallace also presented her “Advice For New College Students From a Professor” at the dinner, which also featured achievement certificates from the offices of State Sen. Anthony Cannella, R-12th District, and State Assemblyman Frank Bigelow, R-5th District.
