“I experienced tremendous growth working at the Fair. I intend to pursue a research-based career and live the most sustainable lifestyle possible.”
With a 4.41 GPA and a strong work ethic, Encinitan Aaron Steger impressed AP teachers and basketball coaches at San Dieguito Academy. This thoughtful young adult says he has been transformed by his summer job at a Fair concessionaire. After working closely with immigrants, Aaron confides, “I re-evaluated my thinking, left old stereotypes behind and became a dedicated believer that people should withhold judgment until they experience various sides of an issue first-hand.” Aaron will use his $5,000 Fair Employee scholarship to study Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley.
