 Del Norte Scholarship Foundation hands out $352,600 in scholarships to graduating students 

For Margarita Rios, not going to college wasn’t an option.

Rios, who will graduate from Del Norte High School next week, will be the first in her family to attend college. Thanks to the Del Norte Scholarship Foundation and the Humboldt Area Foundation, Rios can begin her first semester at Sonoma State University in August without worrying about finances.

“It’s a really amazing feeling,” said Rios, who is the recipient of the Dean Cantwell Memorial Scholarship, a three-year $25,000 a year award. “My parents were nervous that I wouldn’t be able to afford college. Now I don’t have anything to worry about. I’m blessed and thankful.”

 


Redwood Voice: Bullying: Defining the problem

Editor’s note: The Redwood Voice is a group of youth journalists in Del Norte County and adjacent tribal lands who report on stories that might otherwise remain untold, overlooked, or disregarded. Their aim is to illuminate diverse points of view and challenge misconceptions about youth, the community, and the world around us. 

The Redwood Voice’s journalists are a diverse group of youth, 14–20 years old, consisting of students from Crescent Elk Middle School, Del Norte High School, Castle Rock Charter School, and College of the Redwoods. 

It is funded by the Building Healthy Communities Initiative with the California Endowment, with support from the Del Norte County Unified School District. 

The goal of developing the Redwood Voice is to amplify the voices of the youth in Del Norte County and Adjacent Tribal Lands as well as take steps in building youth empowerment.

The Triplicate will periodically publish some of their work. This article is written by team member Paul George, a senior at Del Norte High.

Last year, 10-year-old Cole Price was being bullied by a student in his class at Pine Grove; he says he was called “loser” and “fat” every day when he stepped on the school grounds. Said Cole, “You really can’t do anything because you’ll tell the teacher over and over, and they’ll do one thing that’s not very big and then it will just keep happening.”

 


Church Notebook: Animals have a lot more smarts than we give them credit for

We can learn a lot from our animals. We can’t, however, always make those lessons available to our kids.

My daughter relayed the latest in “sneaky Pete” to me this week, and I wish I could have been there to see it in real time.
