Friday the 13th is viewed by some as an ominous day, a day of superstition and mysticism. Not for 15 lucky college students who have already begun their quest for higher education.  At an awards ceremony for the Contra Costa Association of  Realtors (CCAR) Scholarship Foundation held at the Blackhawk Country Club Friday afternoon these 15 college students received scholarships totaling $47,500  The purpose of the scholarship is to help students whose intelligence and qualities of leadership make them assets for the future good of our community.  The scholarship assists students obtain a quality education and is designed to perpetuate high standards of professionalism in the real estate industry.
