Student Receives National Award for Civic Service

 

 

(March 26, 2014) – Fresno State junior Elizabeth Olenchalk was named a 2014 Newman Civic Fellow in recognition of her commitment to community service and civic leadership. Olenchalk is one of nine California students and 197 from across the country to receive the fellowship.

 

As a Liberal Studies major and Urban Civic Education minor, Olenchalk is working toward becoming a change agent who addresses community issues. For the past two years, she has been an instrumental member of Fresno State’s Alternative Spring Break  program — recruiting, training and mentoring many of her fellow students in service to others.

$3.25 Million Lottery Win

 

SACRAMENTO – A new car. A new house? Those are all things you expect to hear from someone describing their plans after winning the Lottery. However, Salvador Marquez sees even bigger things in his family’s future following his surprise win.

 

Marquez hit the top prize on a $5 California Lucky for Life Scratchers® ticket he purchased at a gas station in Fresno County. (You can see a scanned image of his winning ticket below, complete with the word “LIFE” on line one.) That’s $3.25 million! Marquez will have the option of selecting a lump sum payment of $1.9 million or weekly payments of $2,500 a week for 25 years. Either way, his newfound wealth is automatically exposing a wealth of opportunity that simply wasn’t there earlier.
