The Alpine Woman’s Club awarded their annual scholarships at their June luncheon, where Greg Fox introduced the new officers.
Congratulations to Taylor R. Timanus, Ryan J. Krantz, Briana J. Marlo, and Lisa Timanus. These youths all were awarded on their academic accomplishments in our community.
Taylor Timanus had a very busy two years as an English student, and then a Teacher’s Assistant. She belonged to AVID, Club Eagle, and was in athletics. Taylor will be attending Vanguard University of Southern California. Her goal is to become a teacher so she can offer the great support to other students, just as she received from her many teachers.
Ryan Krantz, a talented young man who is an Eagle Scout, a national ranking USA Jr. Olympic Diver, and a musician who is involved in Physics and Engineering. He achieved Honors in Social Science, Chemistry and Biology. He will be attending Point Loma Nazarene University.
Briana Marlo has made the decision to become a Pediatrician. She has been accepted to the University of California, San Diego, and will be majoring in Biology. Her goal is to become a pediatric oncologist, and is currently a volunteer at Sharp Grossmont Hospital as well as Alpine Country Day School and The Burn Institute.
Lisa Timanus plans on majoring in Psychology and then attaining her Masters Degree in social work. She will be attending California State at San Marcos. She currently works at a job 25 hours a week, but is involved in soccer, cheer, track and was the 2nd runner up Miss Teen Alpine.
Congratulations again to all who received these scholarships.

The San Diego Back Country raises, in my opinion, some of the best kids in the county. Each year, the MEMC interviews each individual scholarship applicant. During the interview, we really get to know what drives these young adults and the Scholarship Panel is amazed. I must say that it truly warms our hearts to know that these kids are the future of our country. The parents of these outstanding students should be proud.
Winners of 2013 MEMC Scholarships and The Carlos Hernandez Memorial Scholarship this year are:
Mikala Aragon, Natalie Cucjen, Michelle Lavin, Kylie Dessel, Kyra Smith, Michael Glover, Emily Cucjen, Daniel Clauser, Alexis Montoya, Nicholas Weiss, Elisabeth Rodarte, Alexander Curiel, Limna Oteo, Sonia Rodriguez, Megan Meyers, Shannon Arguilez, Jason Cook, Aaron Mora, Anthony Gonzalez, and Justin Phillips
Of course, without the support of the Back Country community, MEMC Scholarships simply would not happen. Through your support of our fundraisers, help from other organizations and local businesses, the young men and women of the Mountain Empire are receiving needed financial help in furthering their education.
