YAX scholarship award ceremony
by Maryam Moayery Nia

YAX’s constituency is San Francisco public high school students. Youth from any SFUSD high schools can join, representing over a dozen schools citywide. The majority come from the OMI/Excelsior neighborhoods, with 6 different first languages, and diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
In 2018, OWA-DP generously provided a $1,000 scholarship to one of the student, Naomi Hawksley, based on her great skills.
The award ceremony took place on May 16th at Lick Wilmerding High School. Helen Vasquez from OWA steering committee attended the ceremony to present the award to Naomi.
