In the fall of 2008, the Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation Board decided to initiate a new form of community outreach by offering scholarships to help students and individuals continuing their education pursue their dreams.

A Scholarship Committee was established, flyers and posters were distributed to schools, offices and businesses around the hospital's service area, and a Scholarship Fund was born.

The response was overwhelming, with over 100 applications received by the April 1 deadline. Even more overwhelming was the incredible quality and extraordinary caliber of the individuals who applied. The committee was amazed time and time again as we read through each and every application.

These high-achieving individuals volunteer their time and energy to their communities and churches, hold down jobs, are involved in school activities and all the while maintain an astonishingly high grade point average.

Frequently, the youth of today are the target of negative publicity. However, in our community these young adults are on the path to success, with high goals and accomplishments that far exceed what is sometimes stressed in the press. We are honored and privileged to help seven of these worthy applicants pursue their education with a scholarship.

The committee would like to acknowledge the guidance counselors at Lodi, Tokay, Bear Creek, Jim Elliot and St. Mary's high schools along with the entire facility for an exceptional job on preparing our youth for the future. We applaud you and we thank you.

To all the applicants that applied to the Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation Scholarship, thank you for sharing your remarkable accomplishments with the committee and we wish you all continued success.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
