Close to 100 SASS Recipients Head to College

This fall, 97 students received SASS scholarships, an all-time high for a single semester and a 24 percent increase over last year at this time.

Current SASS recipients range in age from 19 to 61. While the majority are from Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, SASS is also supporting students from Peru, Congo, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Viet Nam, and Cameroon. SASS also is supporting five students who passed the General Education Development (GED) test and are now attending community college.

Sequoia Adult School graduates, along with family members, adult school staff, and community volunteers, attended an orientation session at the Adult School prior to the start of fall classes on the Cañada campus. Some students are attending Cañada for the first time. Others are about to start their fourth, fifth, or sixth semesters.
