Six Pan Am Ambassadors 2024 in front of flags

The Lakewood Pan American Association's annual scholarship program invites high school seniors who reside in Lakewood, regardless of where they go to school, to apply for scholarships ranging from $1,500 to $3,500 to help pay for future college or trade school costs.

This year, the Pan American Association honored six high school seniors from Lakewood whose character is of high caliber. They each have:

  • Demonstrated good citizenship and respect for human values.
  • Volunteered in their community and school.
  • A sincere desire to complete a post high-school education.
  • Excelled academically.

The 2024 scholarship recipients are:

  • Nala Williams (McBride High School)
  • Emma Espinosa (Saint Joseph High School)
  • Isabella Ochoa (Mayfair High School)
  • Leah Facterman (Millikan High School)
  • Alexia Quijada (Saint Joseph High School)
  • Rudy Perez (Mayfair High School)

Scholarship winners served as Pan American Ambassadors during Lakewood’s week-long celebration of Pan American friendship in early May. 

Congratulations and best wishes to each of them!
