CITY COUNCIL PRESENTATION

Meeting Date: May 27, 2008

Subject/Title: Recognize student winners of the City of Brentwood Youth Commission Scholarship

Prepared by: Barbie Gary, Recreation Supervisor

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks & Recreation

RECOMMENDATION
Recognize student winners of the City of Brentwood Youth Commission Scholarship.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The City of Brentwood Youth Commission was approved by the City Council on April 27, 1999 as an advisory body to the City Council and in support of the Parks and Recreation Department.

On March 11, 2008, the City Council adopted Resolution 2008-64 approving the 2008 Youth Commission Scholarship Application and criteria which awards up to four high school seniors who have met scholarship requirements each with a $750 scholarship.

BACKGROUND
The Youth Commission established the Youth Commission Scholarship Application and criteria on October 14, 2002 to assist high school seniors who prove financial need, meet a minimum grade point average, live within the Brentwood city limits, and demonstrate future educational goals. The Youth Commission awarded its first scholarships on May 27, 2003.

Funding for the scholarships is obtained by fundraising events offered by the Youth Commission with the sole intent of raising funds for scholarships. Past fundraising events have included the Spring to Life Fun Run, Tour de Starbucks Bike Ride, Cornfest, and the Battle of the Bands competition. Youth Commissioners volunteer their time to work at such events in exchange for a donation to the Youth Scholarship Fund. Scholarship amount may vary from year to year based on the funds raised and available for that year.

The Youth Commission Executive Team selected four qualified winners from a pool of 15 applicants. The following students were awarded a $750 scholarship:

Daniella Bae: Heritage High School
Matthew Breneman: Liberty High School
Jordan Dietrich: Liberty High School
Madisen Trudell: Liberty High School

The students accepted their scholarship award at their respective high school award ceremonies earlier in May.
