The City of Perris honored four 2017 high school graduates with Certificates of Recognition at the May 30 City Council meeting. The four have received $500 scholarships each to continue their education from the Hispanic Association of Small Businesses. Armando Hurtado, founder and president of the business group, said he created the scholarship program last year because “an educated community is strong community.” He said he appreciates the City of Perris presenting the awards to the scholarship winners. The Certificate of Recognition “recognizes your achievements, hard work and efforts and congratulates you on receiving the Hispanic Association of Small Businesses Academic Excellence Scholarship for 2017.”
