Local youth wins $1,000 Scholarship
Submitted By Robyn Swernoff
Fremont student, Praveena Fernes, 16, was among six Bay Area youths recognized with $1,000 scholarships toward higher education by the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program. Students were chosen for making a positive impact in their communities through volunteerism.
A desire to help victims of domestic violence motivated Fernes to volunteer at SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments). She is the youngest person in her class to complete training to become a Certified Domestic Violence Counselor to help those in need.
Fernes and the other $1,000 scholarship winners now qualify for the chance to receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships for higher education.
