Director to pursue degree
Sunday, July 5, 2015 — In August, Desiree Naseath will leave her position of five years as director of the Westwood Family Resource Center to pursue a degree in sociology with an emphasis on social services at the University of California, Davis.
A $2,500 scholarship from the California State Chapter of the Philanthropic Educational Organization, referred to as P.E.O., will help her as she pursues a career in research. The Ethel O. Gardner Scholarship is awarded to California women who have finished two years of college and are attending an accredited college or university. This spring Naseath graduated from Lassen Community College with an associate of science degree in human services and an associate of arts degree in university studies with an emphasis in social science. Selection for the P.E.O. scholarship is based on a student’s scholastic, character and activities record and financial need.
