BIA cares donates $10,000 in scholarships

BIA Cares, the charitable foundation of the Building Industry Association of San Diego County, awarded three local students with scholarship checks totaling $10,000 at the BIA breakfast June 17.

The recipients included: Juan Ibarra, a graduating senior from Hilltop High School, received $4,000. Kelsey Kwasnica, a graduating senior from Carlsbad High School, took home $3,000 and Sunny Patel, a college student at the University of San Diego, majoring in Real Estate, received $3,000.

"We reviewed numerous applications and conducted thorough interviews. All three of the chosen students had GPAs over 4.0 and have shown an interest in pursuing careers in the building industry," says Ryan Martin, chairman of scholarships for BIA Cares. "We're so pleased to give awards to these worthy students."

BIA Cares, now celebrating 20 years of giving, has raised more than $2.9 million for local charities.
