A Message From Our President

Dear CASCWA and Friends of CASCWA,

First, let me start by offering my congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make this last State Conference in Napa such a wonderful event.  The attention to detail, professional learning opportunities, and events to foster the socialization and camaraderie among members that are such an important part of what makes CASCWA so special were all present and much appreciated.

 

We are all looking forward to San Diego in 2020.

 

The San Joaquin Section is pleased to announce that we are again partnering with the Stanislaus County Office of Education for the 10th annual SARB Conference August 29-30 at the Petersen Events Center in Modesto.  This conference allows attendees to be certified by the Stanislaus County Office of Education as having met the required training for Attendance Supervisors.  Information on registration is available through Wild Apricot on the CASCWA website.  Our hope is to replicate this training in the Fresno area sometime in December, so be on the lookout for upcoming information and dates.

 

We had our annual Anthony Brucia Scholarship Foundation Awards Luncheon in May.  We awarded five  new scholarships of $1,000 each to deserving students with the opportunity for them to earn an additional $1,000/year for three additional years as long as they remain enrolled and in good standing.  Several past winners were also present to pick up their on-going $1,000 awards.  Additionally, we were thrilled to have been joined by Janet Rowse and Ron Cuff from SafeLaunch who generously awarded two additional students one-time $1,000 scholarships.  Many of you became aware of SafeLaunch and their on-going mission to prevent young people from falling victim to substance abuse by attending their presentation in Napa.  They will also be a part of our program in Modesto in August.

 

Have a great school year!

 

Dr. Kevin Torosian
