Wings High School Scholarship

Posted by La Catalina Foundation on March 26, 2009, 2:58 pm

Hola La Manzanilla,

With the help of special people like you La Catalina Educational Foundation started the Wings High School Scholarship Program.

The Wings Scholarship Program finds disadvantaged middle school students that excel in academics but don’t have the financial resources to continue to high school. On average over the last 5 years only 40% percent of students in La Manzanilla continue to high school.

The scholarship provides transportation to a high school in the area (there is no high school in La Manzanilla), text book fees, uniforms fees, lunch money and tuition expenses.

The lucky scholarship winner also receives private one on one tutoring provided through-out the year by LCEF.

As a sponsor you will make a special friend, receive updates, pictures and thank you cards from your scholarship student, and significantly change the life of a child in La Manzanilla.

Here is a quote from one of our scholarship sponsor.

“After meeting our scholarship student we were very impressed with her and her family. We really see the difference the scholarship is making in her life and have enjoyed the updates on her progress......... we would like to continue our support.”

To become a full or partial scholarship sponsor please contact us at

A big thanks to our current scholarship sponsors Duane & Cheryl, Carolyn, Roger, Tracy, Jonathan, Jeff and Chris.

Best Wishes,
