Congrats to the Centurion Foundation's 2016 Scholarship Winners!
Congrats to Xuming "Evan" Liang, recipient of the Phillip Huszar Scholarship
The Huszar Scholarship was started in 2015 by an anonymous donor in honor of Mr. Huszar's Teacher of the Year award. This scholarship is awarded to a senior, selected by Mr. Huszar, who strives for academic excellence not only in the classroom, but also through participation in extracurricular activities and competitions such as the UCHS Academic League Team, the UCHS Math Team, the American Mathematical Society annual competition, and the UCSD Honors Mathematics competition.

Centurion Foundation Update
How are Foundation funds used? The Foundation acts as an umbrella organization for participating sports and extracurricular groups, including providing insurance for Foundation events and, most importantly, keeping up the non-profit status so that donations to each group can be categorized as tax-deductible. Besides the general benefit to groups, the Foundation also provides awards at Senior Night, scholarships, and grants each season.
Starting last year, the Centurion Foundation provided a grant to partially fund the UCHS Trainer. The trainer is available for all UCHS students, not just athletes. All UCHS students have access to the trainer. There are limited funds available to the school for the trainer, and this year the trainer conducts office hours Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between the hours of 2:30 and 4:30 pm (cut down from 5 days, 2 ½ hours last year). Some sports teams pay extra to have the trainer attend their specific home games, such as Football and Lacrosse. These teams pay for the extra hours, outside of CF and UCHS funding, through their specific team fundraising efforts. You can learn more about our trainer at: https://www.sandiegounified.org/schools/university-city/overview-17
The Foundation has pledged funds for the trainer through the UC Spirit Run, held each spring – this year will be our 3rd Annual! Last year, the Foundation was able to net $4,125 which has been pledged to UCHS. All of the UCHS monies received from the 5K event is earmarked for the UCHS Trainer for the use of all UCHS students within the allocated days and hours. In addition, the UC Spirit Run was an avenue for individuals to fundraise for specific groups, and even other local UC schools. A total of $1,369 was raised by individuals. Participants from the other UC schools also benefited from the UC Spirit Run as over $540 in registration fees were given back to our UC schools – they were able to use those funds for various needs, including Running Clubs and PE equipment.
The Foundation aims to continue its mission to supporting UCHS athletics and clubs. If you would like to make a donation towards the Foundation’s efforts, please go to:
