The annual Shirley Somes Continuation scholarship
Given by Friends of the Descanso Library

One of our goals is to to help some of our local adults with their higher education.  Sometimes it only takes a little help to keep someone started on the road to success.  We believe the scholarship is a very worthwhile cause and are pleased to continue this project yearly. We give at least one annual scholarship of $500.

 2018 is the first year that this scholarship will be offered. Shirley was a staunch suporter and chairman of the original scholarship committee for many years.
