    Congratulations to Taylor Litoniua, recipient of the 2011 STFNA Scholarship

    Taylor is a graduate of Notre Dame High School and is heading off to Loyola Marymount University this coming Fall.  Her initial interests of study include studio arts and graphic design.


    Taylor’s letters of recommendation were highly praising of her talent’s and commitment to others and certainly impressed the members of the board.


    Taylor has exhibited her leadership qualities and commitment to her community by working with Title 1 students at Steinbeck elementary school helping them with their reading and writing.  She has sat on the Notre Dame student body council, was captain of her school’s Lacrosse team leading them to the WBAL Skyline Divisional Championships for two years, music minister, retreat leader and elected representative to the outside community representing Notre Dame.  Taylor designed her senior service project, “Color My World”,  around her love for the Arts and Arts education by establishing a six week art education experience for 4th and 5th graders attending Sacred Hearts Community Center’s summer program.  A program that opened doors for children who otherwise do not have the resources or opportunities to explore art.   “Developing their creativity and ultimately their confidence, will help shape their world to come.” She continues to volunteer what time she can to the center. 


    “I want to pursue my art career as a form of communication for those who are struggling and are in need of hope.”



    We wish you well Taylor as you begin this new adventure!


    Thank you again to those who donated to the scholarship program and made this a worthwhile project: Nicholas & Dedra Jize, Marie Moore, Matt Freeman, Donald & Alexandra Duran, David Van Etten, Thomas Schulte, Norma Callender, John Hesler, Jon Reinke, and Lynne Paulson.


    Investing in our promising students is also a way of giving back to our community.

    Through the generosity of a number of local businesses and individuals, the Association recently awarded scholarships to two high school graduates in recognition of their outstanding community service.

    A $1,000 scholarship was awarded to Haley Schorr, who graduated from Pioneer High School in June and will be attending UC Davis.  Haley has tutored students, was a volunteer at the John Muir School’s homework center, has been involved with a program that befriends people with disabilities, has volunteered at a girls’ basketball camp, and has made multiple trips to Mexico & Costa Rica to build homes and provide food for the poor.  Haley is also the Valedictorian in her graduating class.

    A $500 scholarship was awarded to Christina Nichole Jize, who graduated from Santa Teresa High School in June and will also be attending UC Davis. Christina has participated in park & creek cleanups & tree plantings, has made blankets for the children's shelter, made bag lunches for the homeless, volunteered at Community Fest, has tutored, has worked with special education students, and is an active volunteer helping younger students to learn dance at the South Bay Dance Center.
