The Gates Millennium Scholarships


The Gates Millennium Scholarships are given to only 300 high school seniors in the country each year. Two of those students in 2018 were Karla Navarro and Armando Torres of Paramount High School. They were recognized at the May 1 City Council meeting as part of Education Month in Paramount. Karla and Armando have both been on the city’s Youth Commission for two years. He intends to attend Stanford and she means to go to UCLA. Since the Gates Scholarships began in 1999, Paramount High has produced 23 recipients.
