Azusa Scholarship Program
In 1998, Azusa City Council member* and mayor pro-tem Joe Rocha approached Azusa Pacific University administrators and suggested the university establish a scholarship program aimed at attracting the best graduating seniors from Azusa and Gladstone high schools. The partnership between APU and Rocha resulted in the university launching the Nancy Moore/Celebrate Azusa Citizens Scholarship Program, which awards APU freshmen $5,000 scholarships. All recipients won accolades for their community-minded involvement and impressive academic records.
