The Fresno BeeApril 4, 2014 

Tehipite Middle School in central Fresno will host its inaugural Spring Extreme Makeover event Saturday. Students and staff will plant new flowers and shrubs to beautify the campus, providing an opportunity for Steve's Scholars students to receive community service hours.

The community is encouraged to help and is asked to bring gloves, shovels, or rakes. Food and drinks will be provided. The event runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the school, corner Belmont and Augusta avenues just southwest of the Highways 180/41 interchange.

The Steve's Scholars Scholarship program is a $1 million endowment established in 2012 by Francine and Murray Farber in memory of their son, Steven, who passed away unexpectedly 12 years ago. Tehipite students must graduate from a Fresno Unified School District high school and must meet the following requirements to be eligible for the scholarship:

• Maintain a 95% attendance record

• Complete A-G course requirements

• Have a cumulative GPA (or grade point average) of at least 3.0
