The Cox Charities Advisory Board recently surprised 19 San Diego County high school students with scholarships in a virtual meeting that the students said would focus on their educational aspirations.

Students were selected based on their academic achievement, community service, leadership, and commitment to their education. Cox Charities, the philanthropic arm of Cox Communications, awarded them a total of $ 75,000 in scholarships. In East County, the recipients are: Sophie Alcocer and Isabelle Alcocer, Eastlake High School; Alexandra Moye, Helix Charter High School; and Britney Rosas and Tiffany Trick, Patrick Henry High School.
