The Escondido History Center and the FLAG Committee this week announced the nine outstanding Seniors from High Schools in Escondido who are the first FLAG recipients of a $1,000 Honorarium, a personalized journal, a framed certificate and a Student Membership in the Escondido History Center. The awards are provided by the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians.
Each Future Legend was selected from over thirty student Applications submitted from the participating High Schools.
