    Jillian Paist – 2013 Santa Teresa Foothills Scholarship Winner

    The Santa Teresa Foothills Neighborhood Association is pleased to announce that Jillian Paist is the recipient of $1,000 as the winner of the Association’s 2013 Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a college-bound high school graduate who has demonstrated a significant commitment to community service. Applicants must live within the Association’s boundaries.

    Jillian and her family have worked with the homeless and disadvantaged in our community since she was a young girl. Jillian’s four years at Notre Dame High School in San Jose has included participation in toy drives and serving breakfast on Saturday mornings to the homeless at InnVision in San Jose. In 2011, she traveled with her church to Tijuana, Mexico to build homes and organize a children’s program. The bonds she formed with the other volunteers and the families in Mexico, especially the children, deeply affected and inspired her. In July, Jillian will be returning to Tijuana for another week of service as one of the team leaders. In the fall, Jillian will attend Tulane University in New Orleans to study Public Health. She chose Tulane, in part, because of its emphasis on community service. Congratulations, Jillian!

    The Association is grateful to those community members who donated to the scholarship fund, as well as the five community members who served on the scholarship evaluation committee.

    Almaden Lake is contaminated with mercury and is one of the most polluted bodies of water in California.  As a result, the Santa Clara Valley Water District is considering major changes to Almaden Lake.  There are six alternatives currently being evaluated.

    This project has generated significant community interest.  A number of informational meetings have already been held.  The next meeting will be on APRIL 17, 2013 at 7 pm at Joint Ventures Church, 6581 Camden Avenue.
