Two students from Salesian high schools in the Los Angeles Archdiocese are the recipients of the Edison Scholars Program, which provides 30 high school seniors who excel in STEM subjects with $40,000 college scholarships.

On April 10, Pedro Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International, went to Don Bosco Technical Institute in Rosemead, where he surprised recipient William Ramos with a $40,000 Edison Scholars check and medallion.

Alfred Molina, a student at St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, was also a recipient of the award. The winners were selected from both public and private schools in Southern California Edison’s service territory.

“Edison International congratulates this year’s outstanding scholars,” said Pizarro. “Through their pursuit of science, technology, engineering and math, we believe these students will make important contributions to our communities and society. We are proud to support them.”
