Mayor Elsa Paz, along with Hon.

The total amount given to the San Pedro High School was $30,690.00 and the sponsors that covered the entire total were The San Pedro Town Council, The UDP Executive Committee, Mr. & Mrs. Robert Spica, Mr. Dellbert Tolsdorph, Sunrise Realty, Reltsuh Ltd. and Graniel’s Construction.
Principal Addy Martinez of Isla Bonita Elementary School was also presented with a check of $10,400 for scholarships for four students in that educational institution.

Every year the San Pedro Town Council works in finding sponsors who are willing to contribute to these scholarship funds which greatly aid students at all schools in San Pedro. Students on the scholarship program must maintain an average of 80 percentile or above in order to keep the scholarship.
