Congratulations to Cameron Bautista from Basha High School and Carol Chen from Hamilton High School, your 2023 Flinn Scholars representing Chandler Unified School District (CUSD).
These CUSD students are two of 20 Arizona high-school seniors awarded the 2023 Flinn Scholarship, a merit-based award that will provide each of them a full ride to one of Arizona’s public universities.
Carol will be attending the University of Arizona and Cameron will be attending Arizona State Universitywith the goal of obtaining a degree in Political Science and Mathematics.
Chandler Unified was well represented throughout the entire Flinn Scholarship process. Twelve CUSD students were named Flinn semifinalists earlier this year.
Please help us congratulate, Cameron and Carol!
