Seventeen year-old Ariana Maryland is the 2017 winner of the East Sacramento Preservation Scholarship. This poised, graduating senior from C. K. McClatchy High School pushes herself to achieve both academically and physically. “I’m a Varsity Cheerleader and in the Criminal Justice Academy. From freshman to senior year I rose from the second lowest rank in the Academy to the academy’s highest, most honorable rank Company Commander and performed 375 hours of community service.”

Maryland plans to become a federal agent and found that CSU Chico was a good match. “I was looking for a school specially known for criminal justice. I think venturing out on my own will help me mature, but I also didn’t want to go out of state for school because I would be completely alone,” she said. She starts this fall as the class of 2021 and plans to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. When asked how she’ll spend the money Ariana smiled and said, “a laptop for my classes.”

East Sacramento Preservation is proud to support Ariana’s pursuits and we are extremely grateful to the community partners who help make the scholarship happen. Our donation goals are expanding and we will award multiple scholarships in the future. We would like to express great thanks to the following sponsors. We also extend our thanks to the neighbors would generously gave to the fund. If you would like to donate to our scholarship fund, or become involved in our fundraising, please contact Will Green at (916) 202-7956.

Special thanks to East Lawn Memorial Park, East Sacramento Chiropractic, Tiferet Coffee House, River City Management and Sales and El Dorado Savings.
