Ruth Johnston Scholarship
Ruth Johnston lived in Auburn in the 1950-60's era when women might have finished high school, but rarely went on to a higher education. Ruth left a portion of her estate to be managed by Soroptimist International of Auburn, for scholarships granted to Placer High senior girls wanting to continue their education. This $500 scholarship is given out every other year. Grade point average, activities, community service, hardships, obstacles, and financial need will all be considered.
