THS Tardeada 2019 Scholarship Winners

Tempe High Buffaloes Karla Chavira and Maria Garcia were awarded the 2019 Tempe Tardeada Scholarship, funded by the City of Tempe Strategic Management and Diversity Office. They each received a $1,000 scholarship to be used for educational purposes.

The scholarship is only open to high schools living or attending school in Tempe. Five finalists were selected and interviewed by the Tardeada Scholarship Selection Committee in September.

The panel judged applications based on school honors and activities, community involvement and academic achievements. 

The girls will be honored on October 6th at Tempe Tardeada - the City of Tempe’s 21st Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival at the Tempe Community Complex. The event is free and open to the public.
