The Gayle Kennedy Memorial Scholarship is being awarded by the Poway Chapter of the National Charity League in recognition of the devotion to education and community of Gayle Kennedy, a native San Diegan who taught English for 12 years in the Poway Unified School District at Meadowbrook Middle School and Poway High School.

Scholarships are granted each year to deserving girls from the high schools in PUSD. The scholarships will be awarded to students who have demonstrated a financial need, a commitment to pursuing education as a career choice, and a proven track record of volunteering in the community. Deadline for applications is Feb. 28. For more information and to download a copy of the application visit or contact Corri-Anne Burgess, Chair of the Gayle Kennedy Memorial Scholarship Committee at
