Escondido Rising Star

What is the Rising Star of the Month?

Six to eight high school seniors from local high schools are honored at each breakfast.  The mission statement of the Rising Star of the Month is to bring the community together to honor our local high school seniors for demonstrating character, integrity, love of learning, involvement in school and community activities and/or the ability to overcome challenging life circumstances without compromising their education. The core of the Rising Star of the Month is the student who makes a difference in their home, school, and community with sincerity and passion. The breakfast is a great testament to students who have persevered through challenging circumstances in life and have made their education a priority.  The Chamber is thrilled to have launched this program to honor students each month who go above and beyond the everyday call of student life. Over 40 community, civic and business leaders each month to hear from and acknowledge these students.  The ultimate goal of the program is to provide scholarships to one graduating senior from each high school that has been honored throughout the school year.
