STFNA Awards Community Service Scholarships

10 Oct 2009 12:25 AM | STFNA Admin (Administrator)


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.
