COSTA MESA — The Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce over breakfast Friday recognized high school seniors and local college students for going above and beyond.
The chamber honored students who excelled in academics, community service and athletics at the 32nd annual Les Miller Scholarship Recognition Breakfast at the Hilton Costa Mesa.
"These kids have so much going for them," said chamber President Ed Fawcett. "I just wanted to do everything I could to encourage them."
The top 5% of the district's high schools were recognized and the very best of those students were given the Les Miller Outstanding Student Award. Miller was Costa Mesa's first principal.
High school students Andrew Tenno, Jennifer Kumar, James Nelson, Jessica Lyons, Angeline Hong, Daria Farris, Devan Davison, Justine Alonzo, Catherine Ferrara and Ryan Jenkins were awarded.
