Schurr Senior Earns Full-tuition Scholarship to Georgetown University
When asked why he chose to commit to Georgetown University in the fall, Cesar Rios initially answered that he wanted to experience all four seasons at the top-ranked Washington D.C. school. Yet, as the Montebello Unified senior tells his story, he revealed a tenacious plan that extends far beyond the falling of leaves.
Rios, current ASB President at Schurr High School, received word this month that he would receive a scholarship providing full-tuition, all books and a monthly stipend from the U.S. Marine Corps. Upon completion of his studies at Georgetown and all requisite training, Rios will be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Marines. As a NROTC scholarship recipient, he will also receive a discount on room and board.
In August, Rios began the application for the scholarship, which included an intensive physical fitness test and a comprehensive evaluation of his academic performance and extracurricular involvement. It also included interviews with a Marine Corps second lieutenant and corporal. Ranked tenth in his class and a five-year veteran and captain of the Monterey Park Police Explorers, Rios managed all with flying colors.
“Cesar is an exceptional young man with a very bright future ahead of him,” Schurr High principal Francisco Arregui said. “His enthusiasm and energy will be missed on our campus, but we know his talents and drive will continue to carry him on a path of success.”
At Georgetown, Rios -- who is the first in his family to go to college -- plans to study political economics or science, tech and security and hopes to intern at the FBI or CIA headquarters. He credits his interest in national security to a Schurr High teacher who connected him to a member of the FBI who served as his mentor.
“My teachers have been incredible in providing guidance and encouragement – believing in me every step of the way,” said Rios. “I would not have been able to get as far as I have without their support, and I’m eternally grateful.”
To ease his transition to Georgetown, Rios will head to the East Coast next weekend where he’ll be paired up with Schurr High alum and current Georgetown student Rio Djiwandana to learn more about college life. He’ll also be participating in a five-week summer bridge program to prepare for the rigors of his new academic institution – all expenses paid by Georgetown.
“On behalf of the entire Montebello Unified School District, we commend Cesar for all his achievements thus far – and we thank his administrators, teachers, parents and community for their unwavering support in helping him achieve his dreams,” Montebello Unified Superintendent Susanna Contreras Smith said. “We extend Cesar heartfelt wishes for a successful collegiate and professional career and hope that he remembers he, like all of his peers, has resources and support here at MUSD.”
Rios is set to address his class at the Schurr High commencement ceremony on June 15 at 6:30 p.m. at East Los Angeles Weingart Stadium.
