The Dr. Beatriz Solis scholarship for La Puente High School Seniors was founded by the family of Dr. Beatriz Solis (1962-2020), to honor her legacy and impact.
Dr. Solis was a passionate advocate of vulnerable and disadvantaged communities. She graduated from La Puente High School and received her undergraduate, master's, and doctorate degrees at UCLA. Dr. Solis was the Program Director of Healthy Communities at The California Endowment. Her career revolved around translating love to justice. She was dedicated to the concept of building healthy communities through public health policies with the lens of economic, environmental, and racial justice.
In memory of Dr. Solis, Active San Gabriel Valley (ActiveSGV) will be awarding $500 scholarships to two (2) La Puente High School seniors who are planning to pursue higher education. Higher education can either be at a 4-year institution, 2-year institution, and/or an accredited trade school. There is no GPA requirement but you must show proof of being a La Puente High student. All eligible students are encouraged to apply.
We are excited to announce our 2022 scholarship winners! From La Puente High, we have 3 winners: Beya de Loera, Emily Pulido, and Martin Estrada De La Torre. Many thanks to the donors, judges, and benefactors.
