October 5, 2011

Sara Custer Wins SJVC ScholarshipSara Custer, a SJVC Bakersfield student, has recently won a $3,000 scholarship and SJVC sponsored trip to attend the CAPPS awards ceremony in San Diego on October 14th. The scholarship was for students enrolled in an Allied Health program at a CAPPS Member school and required nomination. Sara was nominated by Kelly and Rudy Solano.

Rudy put together the following:

When I first received an email from Mrs. Walters, our campus director, stating that Sara Custer had received the CAPPS Sue Fleming Memorial Scholarship, I felt very excited for our student. Not only did I feel happy for her because she had won the scholarship, but the fact that it is an award that we had to recommend a student for made it more special. She had won, and this meant that we made the right choice in throwing her name into the mix. When I first met with Sara, I could see that she is an eager young woman very much dedicated to her studies and her career. Combine this with the fact that she is one of the top students in her class, and I knew she is destined for success. Sara, I want to congratulate you, and also ask you not to stop applying for scholarships, as I’m sure you have what it takes to win more. Congrats Sara!
