Teri O'Brien Memorial Scholarship
The Dana Hills High School PTSA (DHHS PTSA) is pleased to offer a scholarship program for graduating seniors. We have 3 scholarship opportunities for seniors. In addition, our California State PTSA offers 2 scholarships for seniors.
DUE DATE & SUBMISSION:
The Teri Lynn O’Brien Memorial Scholarship was formed in the spring of 2010 to commemorate the life of Teri O’Brien, DHHS PTSA President from 2005-2007. In recognition of Teri’s dedication to the students of CUSD and Dana Hills High School, and her strong commitment to education, the family and friends of Teri O’Brien have established the Teri Lynn O’Brien Memorial Scholarship. A minimum $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior with financial need, who has demonstrated a commitment to advancing their education, maintained solid academics, and has demonstrated a commitment to their school and community through volunteer service.
