When I realized how stressful finding the money for college could be, I knew I could not sit there and do nothing about it. As soon as I heard about the Education First scholarship, offered by the La Habra Police Memorial Foundation, I immediately saw an opportunity to ease the financial burden my family and I were experiencing. The LHPMF made the process of applying easy, and I felt comfortable throughout the short interview. It was clear that everyone at the LHPMF truly wants to see students succeed in higher education, and I was ecstatic to find out I was a recipient. This scholarship money will help me pay for various school supplies, books, and my tuition. In the end, I could not be more grateful for the opportunity that the LHPMF has given me and other students to pay for higher education and ultimately achieve their dreams in life. Submitted by M.

Dear President Craig Hentcy and Secretary Christina Nunez
I would like to thank The La Habra Police Memorial Foundation for selecting me for the 2022
Sergeant R. Vernon Mangels “Education First” Scholarship. The $1,000 scholarship will help me
to apply it towards my tuition at Harvey Mudd College, in Claremont CA, this coming fall where I
plan to major in Engineering. I look forward to making innovative cutting-edge discoveries to
help humanity and be a contributing member to our society.
Once again, thank you so much for believing in me and supporting me to continue my
education. The City of La Habra is truly a close-knit and “Caring Community.”
Thank you from a Proud Highlander!
La Habra High School
Class of 2022
