It has been a busy time for the Leona Valley Sertoma Club!
Recent activities include the awarding of a scholarship and the election of new officers. Leona Valley Sertoma continues a tradition of involvement with an eye to helping the communities of the Lakes and Valleys to grow and improve. These are made possible through the various activities and fundraisers sponsored by the Leona Valley Sertoma Club and the contributions of the incredible folks who live in our communities. Leona Valley Sertoma is always looking for new members and invites anyone who might be interested in membership to please email Jan Clark at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Most Recent Scholarship Recipient
On May 19, 2017, Antelope Valley College scholarship recipient, Kyle Laitinen, was proudly honored and awarded a $1000 scholarship. Kyle, who is majoring in deaf studies, will be transferring to Cal State Northridge. Deaf and hard of hearing is a primary issue for Sertoma International, so making it a specific criteria to receive this scholarship is to either major in deaf studies or personally be afflicted with a hearing disability. Kyle plans to continue his studies to include tutoring and interpreting in sign language to students who have hearing disabilities. Kyle’s award was presented by Sertoma President, John Seymour (far left) and Sertoma Chairman of the Board, Jan Clark. We certainly wish him the very best!
