Lodi Branch of the American Association of University Women has selected Sarah Cassese to be the recipient of the Ann Rogers Memorial Scholarship. A committee consisting of Linda Hammons, Brenda Kosaka, Kiyomi Hoxie and Donna Swinney made the selection and a gift from the family of Ann Rogers provided the funds for the scholarship. 

Cassese is a University of the Pacific student whose accomplishments and goals share much in common with the values that Ann Rogers demonstrated during her lifetime. A Lodi resident and Tokay High School graduate, Cassese will complete her Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology, with minors in gender studies, psychology and ethnic studies.

She has helped to develop and implement a Women’s Center “Break the Silence on Domestic Violence” multimedia public awareness and outreach campaign for San Joaquin County. She has also been a writing mentor to help students improve the content and style of their papers, an office assistant at Pacific and in private business, and a Habitat for Humanity volunteer.

Cassese plans to pursue her Master’s in Social Work degree at California State University, Stanislaus. She has chosen a career in social work so that she can help others to overcome obstacles and improve their lives.
