Congratulations To Our 2017 Scholarship Winners Felicitaciones a Nuestros Ganadores de Becas en 2017 Podemos Hacer 2018 aún Mejor Con Su Ayuda

We Can Make 2018 Even Better With Your Help

About two years ago, here at Local Community Hero’s, we took a leap forward to start providing a scholarship program to any graduating High School students in local districts. While we are ourselves are still early in the publication arena, we believe that our original cause remains incredibly important. That cause being the recognition of students and good Samaritans in San Jose, and hopefully beyond in the future. With that said, we are incredibly proud to celebrate the anniversary of our first scholarship awards in 2017 as well as the 2018 recpients on the horizon. Congratulations to Brenda Gochar, Truc Nguyen, Maria Moran, Elizabeth Rosales, and Jennifer Hernandez Garcia, our very first winners! We hope to deliver a follow up story to gain an even more inspiring perspective on the impact we have made for them. With all these things said, we hope that we have inspired anyone reading this story, as well as any entities who may feel inspired to become a part of this venture. We are more than happy to allocate our own resources into making this possible, but we are hoping there are others out there of the same warm-hearted mind as our team. Why stop at a few students when we can make a better future possible for a wider range of talent? After all, these young and talented individuals will be the work force of the future. Here at Local Community Heroes, we remain committed to changing lives. Hace aproximadamente dos años, aquí en Héroes de la comunidad, dimos un salto adelante para comenzar a proporcionar un programa de becas a los estudiantes de secundaria de los distritos locales que se están graduando. Todavía somos una empresa joven en el negocio de publicaciones, pero creemos que nuestra causa original sigue siendo increíblemente importante. Esa causa es el reconocimiento de estudiantes y buenos samaritanos en San José y más allá en el futuro. Dicho esto, estamos increíblemente orgullosos de celebrar el aniversario de nuestros primeros premios de becas en 2017, así como los receptores de 2018 en el horizonte. ¡Felicitaciones a Brenda Gochar, Truc Nguyen, María Moran, Elizabeth Rosales y Jennifer Hernández García, nuestras primeras ganadoras! Esperamos publicar una historia de seguimiento para obtener una perspectiva aún más inspiradora sobre el impacto que hemos tenido para ellos. Con todo esto dicho, esperamos haber inspirado a cualquiera que lea esta historia, así como a cualquier entidad que pueda sentirse inspirada para formar parte de esta aventura. Estamos más que felices de asignar nuestros propios recursos para hacer esto posible, pero esperamos que haya otros con las mismas buenas intenciones que nuestro equipo. ¿Por qué detenernos en unos pocos estudiantes cuando podemos hacer un mejor futuro posible para aún más estudiantes con talento? Después de todo, estos jóvenes y talentosos serán la fuerza de trabajo del futuro. Aquí en la empresa Héroes de la comunidad, seguimos comprometidos con cambiar vidas.

Apollo High School Serves the Community By Laurie Brant

Apollo High School is a “Small But Necessary” credit recovery school in East Side Union High School District. Junior and Senior students come from one of the 12 comprehensive schools in the district to attend this model recovery to school to help them recover credits and graduate on-time. In addition to a high school diploma, the Apollo staff works relentlessly to help students discover their college and career path. Every student that graduates from Apollo will be ready to attend higher education at community college, career training at a community college or attend the California State University system. One of the tenets of Apollo High School is for students to help students become productive and responsible citizens. To that end, Apollo has partnered with Reaching Out to bring food to our families in the community. Once a month, students volunteer to go to Reaching Out and pack grocery boxes and bag fruits and vegetables. Then, the food is delivered to Apollo and is distributed to the community. Every family receives groceries, chicken, eggs, fruits, vegetables, juice/milk and sweets. Every month has a different selection of food. It takes about 75 volunteer hours to host this once a month event. So far this year, Apollo has given away $124,000 worth of food to over 700 families and 3,000 individuals. The students enjoy the pantry and are excited to volunteer. “I enjoy helping families get the food they need” said Kiara R. and my mom is happy too, because I get to bring food home afterwards to my family too!” Apollo food pantry is open on Friday, February 9th, March 16th, April 13th and May 11th from 3:00-5:00 pm. It is closed during the summer months. Please feel free to drop by. No identification is necessary.

The Sea of Infinite Creation: Carlos Rodriguez

Scan for Full Interview

It’s not every day that you get to see creativity in action. A special sort of spectacle presented itself to us after interviewing our Hero of the Year from the previous issue. Carlos Rodriguez, a local artist and muralist in San Jose was leading a project on Mt. Pleasant High School’s campus to paint a design and bring new life to an otherwise bland area of the school. Workers from the non-profit “City Year” were there along with students to execute Carlos’s vision. The name of the piece is “The Sea of Infinite Creation”, and while there was much to be said about the meaning of it, what stood out to us was the welcoming and supportive feeling meant for the mural to provide for the students. In the words of Carlos himself “The message is anything you can dream of, and anything you need to draw from, it’s on the mural. So that way when they come in the school, they have this sense of belonging, being welcome, and being part of the community”. Scan the QR code above to watch the full interview. We promise that you will be impressed by the amount of thought put into this beautiful art piece.
