Five college-bound seniors will get help with their college expenses, thanks to scholarships to be presented by the Yolo County division of the California Retired Teachers Association. The $700 scholarships will be presented at the group’s quarterly luncheon on Wednesday, May 22, in Woodland.

The 2013 recipients are Hibatallah Eltahir of Davis High, Stephanie Gonzalez-Garcia and Habeeb Afrasyab of Pioneer High and Maryam Irfan and Joshua Cardoza of Woodland High.

Cardoza also is the recipient of a special scholarship established in honor of the late Woodland High School teacher Bruce Bullock.

Also on the luncheon program will be the award-winning Davis High School Madrigals, who will present a 30-minute program dressed in their Renaissance period costumes. They leave for their trip to Italy in June to perform at the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel.

“We are so happy that one meeting a year can be focused on the achievements of several Yolo County students,” said Karen Lafferty, president of the local chapter. “We are proud to present our scholarship winners to our membership and to be able to enjoy the outstanding talents of the Davis High Madrigals.”

Luncheon reservations can be submitted to Sandi Redenbach at 530-753-4473; the cost is $16 for members and $25 for nonmembers. The event will be held at the Yolo County Office of Education, 1280 Santa Anita Court, Suite 100, in Woodland.

Last year, the California Retired Teachers Association gave more than $675,000 in grants, scholarships and donations to students, active teachers and schools throughout the state.
