Tri-Valley Retired Educators’ Scholarships

The Tri-Valley Retired Educators’ Scholarship, part of Division 85 of CalRTA, is pleased to award a scholarship to each of the following high school graduates who are planning careers in education.

Emily Bennett graduated from Granada High School, and will be attending San Jose University in the fall. Emily has been working with children for years in coaching, as a Sunday School teacher, and as an elementary school intern. She is excited to take the take “the next big steps to her career.”

Sofia Pulido also graduated from Granada High School. She will be going to Sonoma State University in the fall to pursue an elementary teaching credential. Sofia has reinforced her desire to become an elementary teacher the last few years by participating in the ROP Program, where she was an intern with a fourth grade class. Sofia feels becoming a teacher will fulfill her own passion and purpose in life.

Haleigh Fernandes graduated from Livermore High School. Haleigh will be attending Southern Oregon University to study Elementary Education. She feels “educators are under-celebrated heroes and influencers,” and she is excited to “inspire the next generation of life-long learners.”

Matthew Kim attended Amador Valley High School, and he will be going to Emory University in the fall. Matthew is the
son of educators, and talking to his uncle helped Matthew decide on his career plan, which is to become a college professor of political science.

Jayden Schaible graduated from Dublin High School. Jayden first became interested in becoming a teacher when her mother had a daycare center. The last two years Jayden has been part of the ROP Program that has provided her with an internship at an elementary school, which has only heightened her intent to become an educator.

The Tri-Valley Retired Educators are pleased to award scholarships to these young people, and we wish them every success in their career paths.
