2018 ALUMNI SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
The Redwood Alumni gave out two scholarships last May to two amazing young women. The Class of '67 Scholarship went to Nicole Fazzari '18.This is a one time scholarship created by the “summer of love” class, to recognize: “a student who is actively trying to improve society, involved in the community with a desire to pursue a future off equality, protection of the environment and human rights.” She has already been working toward these goals while a student at Redwood. She started the Bring Change 2 Mind Club to help end the stigma against mental health issues. She has also been the president of the GTSA Gay Trans Straight Alliance. She believes very strongly that it is important for everyone to have a place where they feel safe enough to be themselves. Her goal is to go out into the world and help people.She will be attending Arizona State in the fall to pursue a career in nursing. She is a compassionate person and most deserving of this special recognition.  Congratulations Nicole!

 
Nicole Fazzari                    Talia Fleischman

Talia Fleishman '18 is the recipient of the Annual Alumni Scholarship. She has been accepted into the honors program at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture and Education as a double major in Applied Psychology and Studio Art. Talia was fortunate to find her passions at Redwood in both the Art Department and working with the special needs students on campus. As part of the AP Capstone program, she was able to research a topic of her choosing which has directed her to the emerging field of Art Therapy and will continue her research in art therapy for children with developmental disabilities. She is also the daughter of a Redwood Alum, Rhim Fleischman ’83, and grandmother Lorraine McClean Ferrase '61, an added bonus. We are thrilled to award this scholarship to Talia and look forward to hearing more about her career. Congratulations Talia!
