Sponsored by the SMC General Advisory Board and the SMC Associated Students, the awards recognize students in each sport "for their achievements in academics, athletics and community service," college officials said.
“We are deeply grateful to the generous donors who have taken such an active step to advance the aspirations of Santa Monica College students to meet an educational goal, and it is indeed a mutual privilege,” said Deanna Hansen, who chairs the Foundation.
“SMC students are capable of building a better world, and the SMC Foundation is proud to be the conduit that brings generous donors and worthy recipients together,” she said.
