Even though traditional graduation ceremonies and scholarship presentations were not able to take place at the end of the 2019-2020 school year, Ganim Financial continued its community impact efforts this past summer by awarding a scholarship making it possible for Park City Prep graduate Angel Guerrero to attend Kolbe Cathedral High School this fall. Following the criteria established by Ganim Financial 11 years ago, the Ganim Financial annual scholarship is open to all eighth graders at Park City Prep, with the recipient receiving $5,000 to attend the high school of his or her choice.
“Being able to support young people as they prepare to begin their life journey is something we treasure,” said Larry Ganim, owner and founder of Ganim Financial. “As a local business, we consider it an honor and our responsibility to empower students through education, especially at a time when young people and their parents are facing so many challenges.”
“Angel is a young man who typifies what happens to many students over the course of their experience in our school,” added Bruce Ravage, Executive Director of Park City Prep Charter School. “Although he was always bright, Angel’s grades were highest in 8th grade, steadily rising from grade 6 to grade 7 and then to grade 8. We hope and expect that this trend will continue for Angel, in high school and beyond.”
“Every member of the Ganim Financial team was extremely impressed with Angel Guerrero, who finished 8th grade with Academic Honors. We know that the distinctions he earned in his four major subjects during 8th grade will serve him well as he continues his education at Kolbe Cathedral High School,” added Larry Ganim.
Park City Prep is a public charter school offering a comprehensive academic program focused on science, technology and mathematics. The school highlights developing a student’s interest in science and technology, to prepare them for competitive selective high schools. Each year, most graduates gain entry to one or more targeted private or public choice high schools.
