Resiliency Scholarship Recipients Recognized for 2022

Award Supports Students Who Demonstrate Tenacity and Perseverance

Gary K. Hart Resiliency Scholarship

The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) is announcing that eight students are receiving the Gary K. Hart Resiliency Scholarship for 2022, with each student being awarded $1,000. Established by the Sacramento County Board of Education, the scholarship supports graduating students attending its Court Schools, Community Schools, Senior Extension Program, and Leo Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School.

The scholarship is named in honor of Gary K. Hart (1943–2022), who served as California Secretary of Education, a California State Assemblymember, and a California State Senator.

Many SCOE students demonstrate extraordinary tenacity and perseverance in overcoming personal obstacles as they complete their education and advance their futures. The scholarships enable students who have graduated from SCOE programs to pursue educational opportunities and vocational training beyond high school. The recipients are also matched with mentors to help support them as they navigate their post-secondary education and/or vocational training.
