This is the first year that the Escondido Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the Rising Star Program. Each month during the school year seven students are nominated from seven Escondido High Schools to speak at the Rising Star Breakfast hosted at The Centre® in the Crystal Ridge room. The goal of the Chamber is to award $14,000 in scholarships this year. Fourteen $1000.00 will be awarded May 20th at The Grand Ave Festival, Escondido http://escondidochamber.org/grand-avenue-festival/
To bring the community together to honor our local high school seniors for demonstrating character, integrity, love of learning, involvement in school and community activities and/or the ability to overcome challenging life circumstances without compromising their education. The core of the Rising Star of the Month is the student who makes a difference in their home, school & community with sincerity and passion. Escondidochamber.org/
