Education is a gift that lasts a lifetime. When a special person leaves loved ones unexpectedly,
his memory and legacy are what the family keep in their hearts forever. Memorial scholarship
program provides a meaningful way for a family, foundation, or company to honor that special
person, while carrying his or her legacy forward to future generations of students.
Adib was born on January 31, 1997 at Good Samaritan hospital in Los Angeles and he was the
only son of Aklima & Habib Hasnat. Adib Hasnat was a vibrant young man, whose time was
unfortunately cut short in a tragic car accident on May 7th, 2017. He was studying Electrical
Engineering at Mt. San Antonio College and had been admitted to the University of California,
Irvine. Although he was studying Engineering, Adib’s true passion was in his community. A
young man full of potential in public service contributed vastly to the city of Walnut and
completed so much in so little time. Some would say his achievements could even be a full
lifetime of accomplishments for many.
He taught debate to local middle and high school students, strategized and canvassed for
political candidates he believed in, and successfully led a movement to increase the funding for
the Walnut Valley Unified School District. Adib and his team left strong footprints in helping
Senator Josh Newman in his run for Senate District 29 in June 2016 primary election.
Adib has been a blessing for his family, community, and many others. This scholarship is
established to honor the life of Abid Hasnat and to continue his legacy of excellence, generosity,
and service. The Adib Hasnat Memorial Scholarship is an annual, merit-based competition that
focuses on rewarding excellent results in public examination. It also encourages driven and
goal-oriented individuals with a background of consistent civic involvement or community
service to maximize their potential.

help the meritorious indigent students to achieve their goals in life. We welcome and appreciate
everyone who wants to be part of this noble cause to keep Adib’s legacy alive for many years to
