Escondido History Center

2022 Legends Scholarship Program


The Escondido History Center Legends Scholarship Program, providing $1,000 scholarships for ten seniors attending Escondido high schools is once again made possible by Jack Raymond.  


Each of the eight scholarships is linked to a legend or legends who have contributed significantly to Escondido's past and each student awarded with a scholarship will have demonstrated similar values and contributions to their community while maintaining high grade point averages..

The honorariums are intended to be used for expenses such as AP Tests, SAT/ACT, college application fees, senior pictures, yearbooks, sports fees and equipment, school spirit clothing, and memorabilia, or any other expenses deemed important by the recipients.

The Escondido History Center has three main goals in the establishment of the the Legends Scholarship Program.  We wish to honor Escondido’s Legends, recognize the outstanding Seniors attending Escondido's high schools, and promote a community-wide appreciation of the rich history of Escondido.
