Wanting to honor the memory of their recently deceased son and keep alive his spirit of community participation and scholastic dedication, the parents of former South Pasadena student Aydin Salek have established a scholarship fund in his name with the Pasadena Community Foundation. The purpose of the fund will be to support other South Pasadena High School student leaders and/ or high-achieving students of Iranian descent who have demonstrated a special interest and dedication to improving Iranian-American affairs. In establishing the Aydin Salek Leadership Scholarship Endowment Fund, his parents, Hamid and Azita Salek, know that Aydin’s impact on his community will continue to live through this legacy to other students who share Aydin’s academic achievements and leadership qualities. The first grant was awarded to one of Aydin’s classmates graduating in June 2010.
