HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Volunteerism and community spirit has paid off

for two St. Francis Xavier Catholic School students.

Eighth-graders Jennifer Lorraine Farah and Christopher George Khoury

were named California Junior Scholarship Federation Outstanding Students

in April. Both students received plaques nad $500 savings bonds.

"It's rare to have both recipients from the same school. This shows


the school's excellence," said Linda Raabe of the federation.

Students must show a commitment to both their community and school to

qualify for the award.

About 250 schools from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles County

participated, Raabe said. The California Scholarship Federation was

founded in 1967.
