With COVID-19 leading to many students missing out on the pivotal Senior Year experience that is usually typical for high school students, Northgate González Market has helped provide a joyful and memorable experience for YAC member, Salahedin Issa.
Representatives of Northgate Market contacted YAC Staff expressing their admiration for the Youth Advisory Council and their desire to surprise a deserving YAC senior with a $1,000 scholarship. YAC Staff unanimously selected Salah for his invaluable contribution to YAC, kindness towards staff and his peers, and dedication to the organizations that work to serve his community. The YAC Staff then discreetly contacted Salah’s guardian and coordinated a time to meet at a Northgate Market in City Heights.
With masks ready to go, Northgate Representatives and YAC Staff members, Asmaa Deiranieh and Amina Sheik Mohamed, joyfully presented Salah with the large scholarship check, congratulatory balloon, and graduation cake. Salah plans to direct this award to his endeavor of gaining a Business Administration degree at San Diego State University.
We wish you the best of luck in your path Salah and can’t wait to see what your future holds!
