ROWLAND HEIGHTS, CA – APRIL 10, 2015 – The Rowland Unified School District announced today that DEL Records, the largest regional record company in the United States today with SONY Latin U.S., has donated more than $12,000 to the Rowland Unified School District for student and teacher scholarships.
“On behalf of DEL Records, we are pleased to make a difference in the lives of future leaders,” said Nogales High School Alumnus and Executive Vice President of External Affairs for DEL Records, Brian Gutierrez.
Of the funds donated, DEL Records will contribute $5,000 to Nogales High School for student scholarships that will be awarded to graduating seniors and one underclassman student. “We want to recognize students for their academic efforts, good citizenship and commitment to their community. DEL Records believes that students today are the leaders of tomorrow,” said Gutierrez. Nogales High School students can apply for the DEL Records Scholarship beginning the week of April 27, 2015.
An additional $3,000 will be used for RUSD teacher classroom grants. “It is important that teachers are recognized for their hard work and dedication to students.
