They are currently working on the designations for the scholarships. This will be a ongoing fund and they encourage businesses to put this fund into their yearly budgets. Students graduating each year will be chosen for this fund based on criteria that will be developed by the committee. It will not just be based on grades, they want all students to have a chance to apply. Rogers was very much a community service man. He loved his community and took many unpaid and difficult positions within the community to help where he could. Moreno Valley High School was one that was near and dear to his heart. The committee wants all to celebrate his life by creating this scholarship fund. He would have been so proud.

Did you know… this about Cashew nuts? I had no idea. The cashew is technically not a nut at all—it’s a seed that grows on a cashew apple. Cashew apples grow on trees, scientifically called Anacardium occidentale, that are native to Brazil. The apple, with the seed still attached, is picked from the tree branch. The seed is then pulled off, dried, and steamed by hand. The apple has a sweet-sour taste.
