Since the DHA Scholarship Program’s inception in 2000, more than 480 students from area high schools have received scholarships to help finance their continuing education at an accredited college, university, technical or trade school of their choice. The program is financed solely by personal donations of County employees who hold various fundraisers throughout the year – no public dollars are used.
Impressed by the commitment of staff to this program, Supervisor Serna wanted to “match” the amount raised by employees and double the number of scholarships awarded. In 2014, he enlisted his band, “UnSupervised,” to perform the first benefit for the program raising $14,000.
“Education is the greatest equalizer for our young people and future leaders. I’m hopeful that after college some of these same bright minds will return to our community and pursue public service.”
Cash awards will be presented at a ceremony in the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors Chambers at 700 H Street, Sacramento, on Friday, May 15 at 6:00 p.m. More information about the DHA Scholarship Program is available at www.dha.saccounty.net/pages/scholarship-program.
