The Pennies for PEP fundraiser this year was a record-breaking success. Over $20,000 was donated to PEP scholarships for college-bound Paramount kids. The fundraiser took place at all Paramount Unified elementary and middle schools, the high school campuses, the adult school, the District office, and City facilities. Lincoln was the biggest elementary school contributor ($869.25) and Jackson the largest for middle schools (a whopping $10,058). Kelly Anderson (first row left), principal of Jackson, and Topekia Jones (first row right), principal of Lincoln, were at the May 3 Paramount City Council meeting to receive this year’s Piggy Bank Awards for the generosity of their schools. They were joined by the Council, members of the Board of Education and the Superintendent, and members of the PEP Board of Directors.

Thanks to the generosity of the PEP donors, the following Paramount students received a PEP college scholarship for 2016.
