Community of Character Collaborative Announces Juanita Haugen Memorial Scholarship Recipients

Four high school seniors have been selected by the Community of Character Collaborative as recipients of the 2018 Juanita Haugen Memorial Scholarship. Applicants were required to explain how their actions have reflected any or all of the six characteristics adopted by the Pleasanton Unified School District, City of Pleasanton, the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce and other faith and organizations: compassion, honesty, respect, responsibility, integrity, and self-discipline. These values are often represented through their service and community involvement.

The scholarship was created to honor the memory of Juanita Haugen, founder of the coalition, who died in 2007 due to cancer. Haugen was a former president not only of the local school board, but also of the California School Boards Association. Students from each of the Pleasanton high schools’ graduating classes is eligible to apply for one of the annual awards.
