Latino Services Network Awards ACE Scholarships to San Francisco International High School Students
By Kyle Halle-Erby, Span Program Manager, San Francisco International High School
The Latino Services Network awarded the ACE Scholarships to two San Francisco International High School (SFIHS) students on Friday at the Voices of Immigrants Demonstrating Achievement (VIDA) graduation. VIDA is the first student-lead, undocumented student advocacy and resource group on a college campus in California. Each year, they hold a special graduation ceremony for undocumented students and their closest allies who are completing degrees at City College of San Francisco (CCSF.)
During the ceremony, they awarded Marlyn Martinez (SFIHS Class of 2013) and Daniel Sac-Tzaj (SFIHS class of 2017) each a $1,000 scholarship, thanks to ACE. These students were chosen because of their financial need and academic achievement. Marlyn is one year away from completing her degree at CCSF and Daniel has completed seven units this semester through the Early College program, and will be a full-time student in the fall. He is graduating from SFIHS this spring.
Thanks ACE for all your support of SFIHS students – past present and future.
Note from ACE: Congratulations Marilyn and Daniel! We wish you all the best.
