West High student Michaela Manyvanh was awarded $100 donation by the Tracy Firefighter's Charity to attend a "LeadAmerica Medicine and Healthcare" Conference at U.C Berkeley this summer. Michaela will also be doing clinical studies at San Francisco General Hospital. Michaela aspires to pursue a career in the medical field and is working towards admittance to a college or university that has an elite medical program. The Tracy Firefighter's are honored to be a part of helping youth, like Michaela, attain their dreams.
The Tracy Firefighter's Charity was able to donate two
bikes to the "Crossroads" church during the church's
"free to the public" Easter egg hunt on Friday the 6th at
Poet Christian elementary school. Among the Fire engine
were drawings for Easter baskets and a Taekwando
demonstration. Over two thousand plastic eggs were
dispersed into the field and hundreds of kids went crazy
The event raised $1,500 of scholarship funds for local high school seniors Yordon Coss, Alejandra Manriquez, Viridiana Inguanzo and Ross Anderson; and $500 for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program at local schools. The four students were chosen as winners of an essay contest about goals for the future. Their entries also contained recommendations from community members.
Tracy police officer Rich Graham, who shared organizational duties of the event with Michelle Elmore and Christina O’Neal, said the final figures should be finalized by Monday, April 9.
Graham said although it was not fun losing to the firefighters, he said everyone had a good time and really enjoyed playing.
“Once you play in one (game), you get those competitive juices going,” he said.
The captain of the firefighter team, Capt. Paul O’Neal said the key to the game was raising money for the local charities.
“The event worked out really good. A lot bigger than last year and think it will get bigger in years to come,” he said. “It’s always nice to win, but that’s not always why we play.”
Describing the win, O’Neal said, “It’s more bragging rights and we get to hold onto the trophy,” which will be on display at the fire administration building on Central Avenue.
