Divya Wadhwani was a senior at California High School who passed away in January 2015. Divya’s passion for learning, work ethic, positive attitude, and kindness were unsurpassed. Her unwavering dedication to her education was particularly remarkable given the significant medical challenges that she faced throughout her lifetime. Here is a link to an article about her from The Californian.
Each year the Special Services Department presents a graduating senior with a modest financial award recognizing that student’s determination, work ethic, attitude, and growth. Typically, it is a contribution toward an individual’s postsecondary education/training. Over the years, the name of the memorial award has changed, but it has always been about honoring those who have exemplified a passion for life and for learning. For many of us who knew Divya, this award truly captures her spirit and inspiration.
