The Don Diego Scholarship Foundation (Don Diego) is delighted to announce that the North County based-Tuition Granted Foundation (TGF) has provided a $2,500 college scholarship to Gordon Yee.

Gordon, a semi-finalist in Don Diego’s 2013 scholarship process, graduated from San Dieguito Academy in June 2013 with a 4.39 GPA. He will major in biology/pre-med at the University of California, Irvine.

Gordon has confronted an array of serious health issues since he was a young child. He refused to allow his illnesses to be an excuse, instead excelling academically, attaining his Eagle Scout badge, successfully competing in gymnastics, mentoring students, interning at a hospital and performing community service work. Gordon plans to become an orthopedic surgeon. He said, “I’m not just working on my dreams but my parents’ and grandparents’ dreams of success for their children and children’s children.”
