AMPA honors scholar

The Alamo Merchant and Professional Association presented one of its two annual scholarship awards to Monte Vista High School senior Michael Scalise at the school's awards night May 28. A similar presentation was made at San Ramon Valley High School on June 3. Awards Chairman Joe Combs and AMPA Board Member Peter Waldron made the presentation.

"Each year AMPA selects two deserving seniors from our two local high schools," said Combs. "It is our hope that this cash award will enable Michael to more comfortably pursue his objective of furthering his education in business in Santa Barbara."

The Alamo Merchant and Professional Association is a non-profit business organization devoted to improving the business environment and community of Alamo. Other activities sponsored by AMPA are the annual Alamo Tree Lighting Ceremony, the Music and Wine Festival and the Bicycle (BMX) Safety Program. For more information, contact Joe Combs at 989-6086.
