Shayla Esarey Among MSJC Scholarship Winners

Shayla Esarey, a Temecula resident and student at the Menifee campus of Mt. San Jacinto College, has received a $30,000 per year Jack Kent Cooke Scholarship.

Esarey, who will attend Cal next year, was one of 88 MSJC students honored with scholarships through The Mt. San Jacinto College Foundation at a special awards breakfast May 16. She was the only student who attends the Menifee campus of MSJC.

The 16th annual scholarship breakfast was held at the Soboba Country Club in San Jacinto and was sponsored by the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians.

Scholarship awards are based on a person’s academic metric and financial needs. The MSJC Foundation Scholarship Committee is made up of dedicated Foundation board members who review each application and select the recipients.

The funds can be used for tuition, books, school supplies or equipment. The MSJC Foundation accepts donations for scholarships throughout the year. For more information on how to contribute, visit

The Scholarship Breakfast followed MSJC's annual Honors Convocation, held the night before at the Soboba Country Club. The convocation recognizes outstanding and distinguished students for their exemplary contributions to the educational experience. Honors Convocation is also an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of students who have made extraordinary strides as students.
