Dear Joe Baca Foundation,

As I sit here on my first night of living in the dorm rooms, I cannot really express how excited I am. I can only tell you that I am grateful; grateful that I received support from my family, friends, and community. I would just like to say. “thank you” to everyone who has pushed me forward into higher education. I would not he here without you. I would like to give special thanks to Joe Baca Foundation for their generous contribution to my education. I will make you proud. When I start my first class at Cal Poly Pomona, I know I will be thinking of how none of this could he possible without you. Once again thanks for all your help.

Sincerely Yours,
Deanna Carter

Tami BiTo the Joe Baca Foundation:

My name is Tami Bi and I want to thank you for choosing me as one of the Joe Baca Scholarship recipients for the 2008 year. I am currently attending UCLA and though the transition from high school to college has been a bit difficult, I have remained strong and have tried my best to keep up with everything. I feel that the scholarship has given a bit of relief financially and I am grateful for it. When I return to San Bernardino, I hope to make a difference in another person’s life just like what you’ve done for me.

On the side note, I did make the UCLA Marching Band as one of the Colorgurad (tall flags) member. May be some of you have seen me on television during the football games but did not realize it; if not, try to catch me at the UCLA v. USC game. Go Bruins!

Thanks again,
Tami Bi

RIALTO - The thud of basketballs and sound of screeching sneakers set the ambience inside the gymnasium at Eisenhower High School on Saturday, where 125 youths participated in the inaugural Joe Baca Foundation Basketball Fitness Clinic.

The free basketball clinic was a chance for underprivileged boys and girls to learn the fundamentals of basketball and importance of physical fitness.

“It’s fun, fitness and fundamentals. I call it the three F’s,” said John Arnold, one of several coaches who took part in the clinic.

Elizabeth ManzoDear Baca Family:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the Joe Baca Foundation, for having given me the wonderful opportunity to further my education. It is an understatement to say that I had a great time at the awards ceremonies. It is every aspiring professional’s dream to meet with working people, who once found themselves in similar circumstances as our, to share their stories.

It was a very memorable experience and I know that there will be many more to come. This scholarship is of great help to me and my family, since I am not able to apply for financial aid. I will be attending Cal-State Fullerton University, in the fall (August 25) I plan to earn my B.A. in communications, with a concentration in broadcast journalism - Minor in French and graduate with honors.

I am attaching my community volunteer sheet, along with some pictures I took at the Millennium Baltimore Hotel, in L.A. Fortunately, I received a scholarship from the CCNMA Latino Journalist as well. They hosted an award ceremony, where I met KTLA’s Elizabeth Espinoza, “El Piolin”, and Univisions’s Spanish news anchor, Sergio Urquidi.

Once again, thank you to all of you for making my education possible. I will definitely not forget, and I hope to come back to San Bernardino some day and do the same for others.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Manzo

Marisa MendozaDear Mr. and Mrs. Baca Jr.,

I want to extend my gratitude to you and the selection committee for believing enough in me to pick me as on of the Joe Baca Scholarship Award Recipients.

I graduated on June 11th and during the ceremony I couldn’t help but reflect on my school years. Some of the most meaningful memories came from the two evening you gave me. I remembered the stories of struggle shared by the other students and I felt privileged to be amongst a group of hard working and motivated people. I also remembered your Dad’s speech and how much it meant to him to have someone believe in him. I feel the same. I am honored to be a Joe Baca Scholar and I hope to succeed at Scripps College and bring pride to the Joe Baca Foundation and my community.

Thank you again for everything that you have done for me. I will be in touch real soon because I would love to participate in the Basketball Clinic. In addition I am a registered Democrat and would like nothing more than to assist with your father’s re-election campaign. I can make calls or assist with mailings etc.

“Thank you… For all your help and all your caring, you’re appreciated more than you know.”

Sincerely,
Marisa Mendoza
