Brookside Optometric Group is proud to support the outstanding San Joaquin County High School seniors in our community with our annual scholarship contest!

The students on this site have been nominated by their teachers, coaches, guidance counselors, pastors, and youth leaders on the basis of the student's commitment to service, leadership and character. We want to honor the students who demonstrate excellence in their daily endeavors, whether giving back to their community, demonstrating outstanding character, or exhibiting obvious leadership qualities amongst their peers.

We want your input on our 2019 scholarship candidates. Your feedback will help us choose a winner who demonstrates a commitment to service, leadership, and character in our community and beyond. If you know these students, or are just inspired by their stories, please help us out by leaving a comment or rating on their entry.
