About the CFW Scholarship Program and Its Recent Recipients
Established in 1986, Caldwell Flores Winters (CFW), Inc., serves California students and schools from locations in Emeryville, Los Angeles, and Oxnard. In addition to helping more than 200 districts in a number of areas, Caldwell Flores Winters sponsors several scholarship awards.
Designed to help students who will graduate high school, the scholarships, which have no other grade or specific college or university qualifications, range in amount from $1,000 to $5,000 and are awarded to more than 25 students every year. CFW has presented scholarships totaling more than $400,000 since 2008.
Two of its recent scholarships went to Vincent Meras of Riverbank High School and Stevie Wisz of Ernest Righetti High School. Both students have overcome life challenges and worked to pursue postsecondary education. Meras, who played basketball all four years of high school, plans to take the lessons he learned on the court to a future career in finance or business. Wisz plans to attend UCLA, where she will begin studies toward her intended career path as a physician.
