Thank you HealthNet for your generous donation to Stockton Scholars, and to Central Valley Health Network and @sjcofficeofeducation  for partnering with us to make this happen. Support from organizations like these are the reason why Stockton students will have the resources needed to help pursue jobs in the healthcare industry #ReinventStockton
"Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction. The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically."—Martin Luther King Jr. Today we celebrate the life of a true visionary. Happy #MLKDay!

It’s been one year since Stockton Scholars launched, and we couldn’t be more proud of all we’ve been able to accomplish. We’ve grown our team, rallied young Stocktonians to become ambassadors of our program, and most importantly, helped provide students with the opportunities and resources needed to obtain a higher education. On this anniversary of our launch, I just want to say thank you to our supporters for being a part of this work. There is still a lot of work to be done, but there is nothing we can’t accomplish if we work together #stocktonscholars #ReinventStockton

One year ago today, with a $20 million seed donation, Stockton Scholars was launched. Since then, we visited and hosted events at 22 schools throughout Stockton, awarded 20 competitive Rose from Concrete Scholarships, granted $55k to local schools to boost college and career readiness, and granted 20 Toolbox Fund Scholarships

Stockton Scholars sends a clear message to Stockton students: If you want to pursue a higher education, tuition and fees will not be barrier. The best is yet to come in 2019 as we will see our first class of Stockton and Shriram Scholars grant recipients. #ReinventStockton
We received some very exciting news yesterday! Mayor @michaeldtubbs, Assemblymember @eggmansusan, School Board Trustee Chair @langeparks and Councilmember @i_amsus announced $2 million in Governor @gavinnewsom’s budget for a potential CSU Stockton! This will help with the accessibility and affordability of a higher education for Stockton students. This is tremendous news for our community #ReinventStockton
Join us! There will be a Yoga class at the Stockton Education Hub, located at: 1700 El Dorado St. Stockton, CA 95206, on Thursday, January 10th at 4pm. This is an internal Reinvent team event, but we’d like to invite any students or educators to participate for free to celebrate the kick-off of a New Year! Please bring your own mat, as well as a staff or school ID. We hope to see you there! #ReinventStockton
2018 has been amazing! The Stockton Scholars team would like to take a moment to reflect all that has been accomplished this year. 
In 2018, we: * launched the Stockton Scholars program in front of hundreds of students at the Bob Hope Theater.
* held our first Stockton Scholars Signing day event and financially supported 20 pioneer college students (our Roses from Concrete) in making the jump to higher education.
* grew our Stockton Scholars team to help register hundreds of students throughout our city for this scholarship.
* hosted events at 22 schools and recruited 41 student ambassadors to spread the word about Stockton Scholars.
* prepared to distribute hundreds of grants to students in 2019.

We’re hoping to keep this momentum coming into 2019. Happy New Year everyone 🎉 Let’s continue to #ReinventStockton
