Granite Hills students awarded scholarships

Each year the Alpine Kiwanis Foundation presents two scholarships to Granite Hills High School students. This years recipients were Jose Garcia and Jacob Palmer.  Jose is graduating with honors, and Jake completed the very rigorous International Baccalaureate program. Two students are identified by their counselors at the beginning of their Sophomore year and sign contracts with Kiwanis to keep their grades up, have good attendance, and remain drug free.  At the beginning of their Senior year they receive a laptop computer to help them through the college application process, and upon graduation, are rewarded with a $3,000 scholarship. The scholarships are funded by our Alpine Challenge Bike Ride. Shown here with the students is member Pam Price who presented the awards at the Granite Hills Senior Awards Night Ceremony.

About Our Club

We are the third largest Kiwanis Club in our District (California, Nevada and Hawaii), and have established a reputation for excellence within Kiwanis International as one of the largest and most active clubs.  
 
Our Club has donated approximately $820,000 to Rady Children's Hospital since 1990!
 
In August 2013, the Kiwanis Club of Alpine was prominently featured in the Kiwanis International Magazine as a small California community with a big Kiwanis heart.
 
We were named "Organization of the Year" at the 2010 Alpine Leadership and Public Service Awards for the third year running. We also received the 2011 Alpine Sun Newsmaker Award for the second year running for the Kiwanis of Alpine Veterans Wall of Honor!  Our 2008-09 President, Dan Foster, received the Special Recognition Award.  At the 2009, 2011 and 2012 District Conventions, we received an award for the Best Website in the Cal-Nev-Ha District.  At the 2010 and 2012 District Conventions we received an award for the Best Newsletter in the Cal-Nev-Ha District.
 
We are known not only for our service to the children of the world, especially those living in Alpine, but also for our camaraderie and fellowship, and for the fun we have making our community a better place for everyone.  
 
When asked, "What makes the Kiwanis Club of Alpine so successful?", member Charles Nelson replied, 
 
"It is the work.  The work we do is the engine for building and maturing the club. People who join the club are from all walks of life but have in their heart something in common. That is a desire to improve the quality of life in their community and to help children grow and live life successfully. The work provides an opportunity for members to work together forming teams and expanding acquaintenance with each other. Our common motives quickly build mutual appreciation of each other.  The teamwork matures and builds a family and we care about each other. This process that makes such a contribution to community and children yields an unmatched experience for all of us."
