A Taste of Excellence 2018

On Saturday, April 28, Sierra College Foundation will proudly present the 14th annual A Taste of Excellence on the Sierra College campus in Rocklin. This is the Foundation’s largest fund-raising effort and includes a tasting of fine foods and wines from the best restaurants and wineries in Northern California.

Event proceeds will support Sierra Promise – a comprehensive effort devoted to reaching high school students who never thought college was possible, and getting them on the path to secure employment. Working with regional school districts, Sierra Promise provides early and continued outreach to students in 15 local high schools to improve college readiness, access, and student success.

Your support of A Taste of Excellence empowers Sierra College to keep our Promise to students! Together, we are creating a college-going culture in our region, and Sierra Promise is helping students plan and achieve their own success story.

Your Philanthropic Dollars at Work

Impacting Students’ Goals - Sierra College Scholarships - Kelly Fitzgerald

Kelly FitzgeraldKelly Fitzgerald, a single mother of three children, juggling work, family, and school, made the decision to pursue a career in nursing while attending Sierra College. The intensive program often makes it difficult for students, like Kelly, to work full time. Moreover, the cost of books and other materials, can have a manifold effect.

After being made aware of the numerous scholarship opportunities Sierra College offers, Kelly applied for, and was awarded, the Marjorie and Arthur Goetz scholarship and the Richard B.D. Chun, M.D. and Opal L. Chun, R.N. scholarship, among others. “Being the recipient of a scholarship alleviated a lot of stress, allowing me to focus on my top two priorities: school and family.” Kelly says. Your generosity strengthens our community by facilitating the training of tomorrow’s public service heroes, like Kelly!

Thank you to our scholarship donors, who graciously give to impact our students’ educational goals!
