The top two students at Hayden High School for the Class of 2017 are Laryssa Torrez, Valedictorian (left), and Alejandra Martinez, Salutatorian.

  Hayden High School graduates were rewarded for all their hard work with thousands of dollars in scholarships and awards during the scholarship program held Monday.

  Many local students will qualify for the Central Arizona College Promise of the Future program but it is no longer considered a scholarship.  The very popular program was in jeopardy of being cancelled if different financial controls were not put into place.  Starting this year the Promise for the Future award will be given to the qualifying student only after all Pell Grant funds are used. Each award is worth up to $6,048.
