TVCC ‘Students of the Year’ Honored

The Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce eight outstanding Temecula students as 2017 Student of the Year. Each of these students received a college scholarship valued at $1,350 from the Temecula and Murrieta business community. The students and their families were treated to a formal breakfast at Sizzler Restaurant in Murrieta on Thursday, May 18, 2017. The students were commended by numerous business sponsors and were each awarded plaques and certificates from Local, County, State and US dignitaries.

Every year, the Student of the Month recipients compete through a rigorous application and essay process to be selected as the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce Students of the Year.  The Student of the Month Program has honored students in Temecula since 1993 which was founded by Sally A. Myers of Sizzler/BMW Management Inc. All gifts, meals and scholarships are donated by the generosity of the business community.

The 2017 Students of the Year are:

  • Chaparral High School: Ana De Pereda
  • Great Oak High School: Axel Malahieude
  • Linfield Christian School: Ally Lawler
  • Rancho Christian High School: Jaimie Brown
  • Rancho Vista High School: Lillyana Gomez
  • Susan H. Nelson High School: Ali Calipo
  • Temecula Preparatory School: Chelsea Chikwanda
  • Temecula Valley High School: Julianna Rodriguez

The Student of the Year Breakfast would not be possible without the many sponsors that contribute to the program. The Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the sponsors for recognizing the importance of education and the community.
