MURRIETA – "It’s our pleasure and honor to award the very first YPN scholarship to Anthony Bandong," said Brett Chappell, Chairman of the Southwest Riverside County Association of REALTORS® Young Professionals Network (YPN).

Bandong is a 2014 graduate of Great Oak High School, recently called the "Harvard of High Schools in Riverside County" by the County Superintendent of Schools. He is an honors student with a 3.8 GPA; 4.0 in his last three semesters, including numerous AP courses.

Bandong was a three-year varsity football player, team captain in his senior year and led the area in tackles per game. He was named to the All-Valley team and received Great Oak’s top football award "Spirit of the Pack."

Bandong was involved in student leadership and was part of the Ms. Marvelous and Mr. Fantastic pageants for special needs students. He also headed up the first city-wide championship for Powder Puff Football and coached the Great Oak senior girls’ team to victory. He was a candidate for Mr. Wolfpack.

video for the Eric Paredes Foundation in San Diego advocating heart screenings for athletes to prevent sudden cardiac arrest. He lost a former classmate to a previously undetected heart condition three years ago.

Bandong plans to study Business Management for Healthcare Administration at Cal State University at San Marcos. He will be putting himself through school, intends to get a master’s degree and eventually become a top hospital or medical group administrator.

"I’m excited and honored to receive the first YPN scholarship, especially since I will soon be a broke college student!" quipped Bandong.

"This was a perfect fit for our first scholarship," said Adam Ruiz SRCAR® Board Member and former YPN Chairman.

YPN is part of a nationwide network of the National Association of REALTORS® that helps young real estate professionals excel in their careers by giving them the tools and encouragement to become involved in four core areas: REALTOR® Associations, Real Estate Industry, peer networking, and local community service. They plan on continuing and expanding their scholarship program in the coming years.
