In the year 2011 I graduated from Oceanside High School. I was honored to be a recipient of the Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship. A small portion of that money allowed me to purchase my first camera which started a chain of events that led to the start in my photographic career.

Every year past recipients are invited to attend the ceremony and welcome the new recipients into the scholarship family to share the experiences and opportunities the scholarship has given them.

In my own form of giving back I have decided to provide images for the event. All the images here are completely free for families and friends to use and download at the full resolution. Simply right click and "Save As".

Congratulations to all the recipients and a very big thank you to all the gracious donors who make events like these possible.
