School of International Business Hosts Dell Scholarship Officials

Dell Foundation receptionThanks to the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, 12 students from Kearny High School of International Business (SIB) have received generous college scholarships over the last four years -- nearly a quarter-million dollars' worth of aid.
To thank the Dell Foundation, SIB students and staff held a reception for foundation officials, Oscar Sweeten- Lopez and Ninfa Murillo, during their visit Dec. 13. Students proudly showed officials their school in action as the visitors sat in several classes in session. After the student-led tour, foundation officials sat with seniors to help them with their college applications.
Dell Foundation has donated $240,000 in scholarships. For more information, contact Erica Heinzman, SIB teacher, (858) 496-8370, ext. 4415.
