Dude Angius Scholarship

A Scholarship in Memory of Dude Angius:

A Scholarship has been established in memory of Dude which will be given annually to reward and motivate a graduating LAHS senior who demonstrates excellent leadership potential.  An account for the scholarship has been created at the MV-LA High School District Office, and thanks to donations from alumni, retired faculty, and the Los Altos community, the initial $50,000 goal of the Dude Angius Scholarship fund was exceeded! 

Each year three seniors are selected as finalists for the scholarship based on demonstrated success in a rigorous and  challenging schedule of coursework, and leadership and service at school or in the community.  The scholarship winners are selected based on an essay application by the Angius family - Barbara, Mike, Bob, Dan, and Toni, plus Jeff and Dan, two of Dude's grandsons.

The first $5000 scholarship was given on May 27, 2015,  to Jhosseline Guardado who gaduated in 2019 from UC Davis and is now persuing a law degree.  The second $5000 scholarship was awarded to Bailey Thayer at the school's Senior Recognition and Awards Program on May 25, 2016.  Bailey was an outstanding LAHS student athlete and is now a senior at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.  On May 24, 2017, the third scholarship was awarded to Yessenia Gutierrez who is in her third year of studying computer science at Holy Cross College in Massachusetts. She is planning to enter the school's 3-2 program in cooperation with Columbia University after which she will earn a BA in computer science and an BS in computer engineering from Columbia.  On May 23, 2018, the 4th scholarship was awarded to Alitcel Camacho Perez who is in her second year of studies in Sociology at Sonoma State University. On May 22, 2019, Luis Ignacio was awarded the 5th scholarship and is now studying Computer Science at UC Berkeley.

Since scholarship accounts at the district office do not accrue interest, any additional donations will extend the life span of the scholarship.  If you wish to contribute, please make your donation payable to “Los Altos High School”, with "Dude Angius Scholarship" on the memo line, and mail to:   Los Altos High School, Attention: Silvia Alcala, 201 Almond Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94022.  All donations, however small, are welcome.
