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.
Congratulations to both Haley and Christina. Your community is proud of your dedication,
service, and achievements!
