The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association 
announced Thursday that it has selected eight 
high school seniors as the 2022 ROSE Scholars. 
This year, the program awarded $20,000 in 
scholarships to eight graduating seniors from the 
Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD). ROSE 
Scholars, presented by Citizens Business Bank, 
is a program designed to help students in our 
community thrive and to foster their potential.

 As part of the application process, students were 
invited to submit a creative piece that reflected 
their future dreams, goals and aspirations. A one-
page reflection describing their thoughts and 
feelings about the piece was also required, as well 
as still images of their work and a video recording 
describing their inspiration.

“Citizens Business Bank is honored to support 
the 2022 Class of Rose Scholars,” ” said David 

A. Brager, President and Chief Executive Officer 
of Citizens Business Bank. “Our ongoing 
partnership with the Pasadena Tournament of 
Roses Association continues to make a positive 
difference in the communities we serve by 
providing scholarships to local students to pursue 
their education. We wish all the Pasadena Unified 
School District students who applied or were 
selected well in their future endeavors.”

 Instead of a minimum GPA requirement, 
applicants were asked to obtain a recommendation 
from a teacher, coach, counselor or community 

 “Congratulations to the 2022 Class of 
Rose Scholars, said Brian McDonald, Ed.D., 
Superintendent of the Pasadena Unified 
School District. “Through their hard work and 
determination, the recipients of the awards have 
demonstrated that they are prepared for the next 
part of their educational journey. I would like to 
thank Citizens Business Bank and the Tournament 
of Roses for their continued commitment to the 
students and schools of the Pasadena Unified 
School District.”

 Applications were reviewed and scored based 
on the structure of their art, the organization 
and language of their written reflection, and the 
recommendation from an educator, coach or 
community member. The review committee was 
composed of Tournament of Roses members, staff 
and PUSD representatives.

 The Association and the Tournament of Roses 
Foundation are focused on positively impacting 
the Pasadena community with charitable giving, 
volunteerism and community involvement. As 
part of this work, the Association has partnered 
with Citizens Business Bank for ROSE Scholars 
and other signature community programs.
