Hi Warriors, I received
an email recently from one of our fellow alums, Danny Arguello asking me to post
this item of interest to all. This sounds like a pretty good opportunity
for us to make a difference in some young people's lives.
Dear LPHS Alumni,
My name is Danny Arguello, Scholarship Coordinator for La Puente High School
GEAR UP Program. We would like to invite you to support, participate, volunteer
in our first annual Scholarship Fundraiser to help support college bound
students from LPHS pursue their dream of a higher education. As LPHS alumni, you
know the benefits of a higher education firsthand.
Gaining Early Awareness & Readiness for Undergraduate Programs- GEAR UP is
federally funded non-profit partnership grant between the Hacienda La Puente
Unified School District (HLPUSD), Mount San Antonio College (Mt. SAC), and the
California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (CPP). Together we are launching
a $150,000.00 matching scholarship campaign for the graduating classes of 2008
to 2012. We believe that a higher education provides our youth the opportunity
to become productive citizens in our community. It is now up to La Puente High
School to meet the challenge of raising $75,000.00 in scholarship matching funds
from the community.
The majority of the students at La Puente High School come from low-income and
educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Many of our talented youth will be the
first in their families to realize the American dream of attending and
graduating from a four year college/university. For many first generation
students and families, the thought of pursuing a college education may seem
impossible due to cost. In our experience, the cost of attendance is the number
one reason why talented and highly qualified competitive students do not pursue
their post-secondary education at four year universities.
We are proud to announce that with the first graduating class of GEAR UP
Students in 2008, La Puente High School experienced college enrollment increases
to all sectors of the higher education.
University of California
California State University
In addition we had 159 students pursuing their education at local community
With your scholarship donation, our students will have the opportunity to
access a total of $150,000 via the GEAR UP Scholarship Fund for the graduating
classes of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. We are asking for your support as
we reach for the goal of securing $75,000 before August 31, 2008. If we don't
reach our goal the funds will go back to the Federal government and our students
won't have a chance to pursue their dreams. Your monetary donation is
As an alumni of La Puente High School, or know someone who is, let them know
what could happen if we don't support our students.

colleagues, and friends, that number can be significant. When you give to LPHS
GEAR UP SCHOLARSHIP FUND, you can add hundreds of people to that list. Every
support you give to LPHS GEAR UP SCHOLARSHIP FUND has a direct impact on
Your contribution will transform lives and careers, and the impact of your
