Sampling for Success: 2015: A Joyous 5th Anniversary Celebration
More than 140 guests and 25 SASS recipients celebrated SASS’s 5th anniversary at Sampling for Success 2015. The event took place on May 2 at Trinity Church in Menlo Park.
The event’s keynote speaker, Amanda Renteria, national political director of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, shared her experiences growing up in the Central Valley as the daughter of an immigrant farm worker, being the first in her high school to attend Stanford University, and, most recently, playing a key role in the Clinton campaign.
Student speaker Moises Bautista is the first SASS recipient to graduate from community college and transfer to a 4-year university. A reluctant math student, Moises described how he started out taking pre-algebra, then continued taking math classes until he eventually discovered his passion for math and engineering. Moises will transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall where he will study industrial engineering.
