Sacramento, CA (MPG) - Siven Ly of Rancho Cordova received United Way California Capital Region’s Young Leaders Society Member of the Year award earlier this month at a recognition event held at Antiquité Maison Privée in Midtown Sacramento. She was one of five United Way donors and volunteers honored by the local nonprofit for their commitment to United Way’s Square One Project that is ensuring local students graduate from high school prepared for success in college and beyond.
Ly chairs United Way’s Young Leaders Society action group and was honored for helping the group to grow as it works to support the Sacramento Kindergarten 2 College Savings Program that United Way sponsors so families can set up college savings accounts for their kindergarteners. Ly also encouraged her employer, Social Interest Solutions, to become a United Way workplace partner.
Other honorees included the Kings’ Scott Moak, Jessica Gauna-Miller of Elk Grove, Keith and Char Donnermeyer of Granite Bay, and UPS groups in Rocklin and West Sacramento.
At the recognition event, United Way California Capital Region President and CEO Stephanie Bray told guests and honorees, “I know we have a bright year ahead as we continue to work together to make sure kids succeed in school and beyond. But it’s going to take all of us. I hope you will continue or step up your commitment to the exciting work we are all doing together through the Square One Project.”
United Way California Capital Region is leading the Square One Project, a 20-year promise to significantly increase the number of local students who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. Through nine decades of work and research across Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties, United Way believes ending poverty starts in school and is working to ensure kids meet important milestones for success in college or career.
