President's Scholars Competition 2001
The sixth President's Scholars Competition on March 3 brought 204 high-achieving high school seniors to campus. The students, accompanied by almost 400 family and friends, took three exams to compete for over $132,000 in scholarships.
The number and size of scholarships have grown from two $5,000 scholarships offered the first year to the 10 four-year, $12,000 scholarships offered this year.
The competition day allows fall 2001 first-time students who have been accepted to the university and their parents to see the campus and attend demonstrations of programs in various colleges.
Some of the highlights of the day are shown in the four rows of pictures in the collage at right: (Top right, top row) Sally McNall and Carol Edelman talk to a prospective Honors student and her mother; President Esteban discusses the competition with Pam Nepstead and her sister, Nicole, who is a CSU, Chico, sophomore. (Second row) Lynelle Bosworth, Agriculture student, describes the new world of agriculture to parents; President Esteban crafts a glass fish in a glass-blowing demonstration. (Third row) President Esteban talks with Mike and Sheri Wiley, parents of Julia Wiley, who is considering attending CSU, Chico.

(Bottom row) Students and parents join deans and faculty at a reception after the day's exams and tours.
