Beaverton Optimist Club awards scholarship for public safety
Cesar Rubio, a recent graduate from Aloha High School, was awarded a $1,000 public safety scholarship from the Optimist Club of Beaverton, Oregon. Rubio plans to attend Portland Community College and pursue a degree in criminal justice. His goal is to become a police officer.
The Beaverton Optimist Club has awarded the scholarship for 15 years in honor of the late Dean Mitchell, a former club officer who was interested in public safety.
The club meets at 7 a.m. Thursdays in the Peppermill Restaurant, 17455 S.W. Farmington Road, Aloha.
