Elysian Valley United will host the 2016 Community Scholars Awards Dinner on Friday, June 3,
5:00 p.m. at Allesandro Elementary School, 2210 Riverside Drive in Los Angeles. The dinner has been a long-running staple in the Elysian Valley community, where students from Allesandro Elementary and Central High School-Elysian Valley Branch are honored for their academic growth and accomplishments.
Prior to the awards ceremony, students and parents will be feted at the annual dinner, catered by local legend, "Kevin's Tacos." During the awards ceremony, wearable translation units will provide seamless, on-the-spot translation and information for our Spanish-speaking neighbors.
In addition to the Awards presented to local students, EVU will honor Mr. Lynn Andrews for his 36 years of service to the local community as Principal of Allesandro Elementary.
This marks the first Awards Dinner held by Elysian Valley United in several years. Between 1997 and 2009, EVU viewed Community Scholars as the capstone to our annual cycle of events. With the return of the Awards Dinner, EVU is committing to a renewed series of community-based programs and services for the Elysian Valley and Northeast Los Angeles communities.
