The Laguna Beach High School Scholarship Foundation awarded 140 graduating seniors $431,013 in the form of 152 scholarships at the annual Honors Convocation Friday, June 8.

The foundation was established in 1947 by the women’s community service organization Ebell Club to support at Laguna Beach High School students.

Since then, the program has grown through the efforts of community volunteers who serve on the board and work with LBHS staff to support the scholarship process.
