Student Speaker Scholarships

Photo of student scholarship recipients 2007It has long been a tradition at Santa Rosa Junior College to honor the accomplishments of its students by choosing a commencement ceremony keynote speaker from among the graduating class. This has become one of the highest honors bestowed by the College. Each year Santa Rosa Junior College students with the highest academic records in the graduating class are invited to compete for the keynote speaker honor. The selection process is held in April and a student will be chosen by the college "Graduation Speaker Selection Committee". The student speaker receives a scholarship from the Mead Clark and Herbert W. Slater Scholarship Fund in the amount of $800.
