Twenty-four Orange County high school graduates will receive $31,000 in scholarships Saturday from the Efren Herrera Scholarship Foundation. The nonprofit organization was created six years ago by Herrera, former place-kicker for the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys football teams, and Manuel Ramirez, presiding justice of the Appellate Court of San Bernardino, in an effort to raise money for college-bound Latino students.

To a casual observer, the scene at a recent high school football game might have seemed odd. A kicker makes a short field goal, jumps up and down in celebration and finally leaps into the arms of a 280-pound lineman, who smothers the 5-foot-6, 116-pound kicker with a big, long bear hug. But while some players might have rewarded their teammate with a pat on the behind for a good kick, Monroe High players and coaches treat their kicker differently--and for good reason. Their kicker is a girl.

Those parents who hastily reacted negatively when they saw the report cards need to understand the distinction between bilingual education (which is a separate issue)
