$1million in Simon Youth Scholarships Includes Awards for Local Student

Carlsbad CA—  A local student will continue her education this fall with the help of Carlsbad Premium Outlets and Simon Youth Foundation (SYF).

Hannah Dadah of Irvine, has received a Simon Youth Foundation Community Scholarship valued at $2,500. The scholarship is awarded in partnership between Carlsbad Premium Outlets and Simon Youth Foundation (SYF), a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational and career development opportunities for youth.

Dadah is a recent graduate of Irvine High School and exemplified herself through academic excellence, leadership skills, and participation in both school and community activities.  She plans to study Animal Science at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall.

“We are very proud of the Simon Youth Scholarships program, because it has given us the opportunity to support the academic endeavors of promising youth right here in our community,” said Janissa Reyes, Director of Marketing and Business Development.

Simon Youth Scholarships are awarded annually to at least one student in every U.S. community that is home to a Simon® property. This year, approximately $1.1 million will be awarded.

“Simon Youth Community Scholarships reward academic excellence across the country and help students to continue their education,” said J. Michael Durnil, President and CEO of SYF.  “Financial concerns should never be the reason preventing a child from pursuing their dreams.”
