Sana Moezzi has been selected as a 2020 recipient of Northwestern Mutual’s Childhood Cancer Survivor Scholarship program. Forty-three students, the largest cohort to date, have each been awarded a $5,000 renewable scholarship this year. Knowing that costly treatment associated with childhood cancer can lead to long-term financial challenges, including how to afford higher education, Northwestern Mutual developed the scholarship program. Sana was diagnosed with cancer during her senior year of high school. Her determination to help others in similar circumstances inspired her through her own difficult journey. At age 18, she became the youngest wish-granter for the Make A Wish Foundation, and Sana has been able to grant the wishes of other children with cancer. She is studying business administration at the University of San Diego. Applications for the 2021 scholarship program are open through Monday. To apply, visit learnmore.scholarsapply.org/nmsurvivors or learnmore.scholarsapply.org/nmsibling.

Solar project on roofs, carports at campus

San Diego Jewish Academy recently marked a milestone in the school’s Sustainability Initiative with the staging for its 800 KWh solar project, which will advance the school’s self-sustainability. The project includes installing solar panels on most of the building rooftops, as well as on new carports. When completed in March, with the addition of a large energy storage (battery) system on campus, the academy will save approximately $400,000 annually by generating its own electricity. The project design includes a roadmap to develop the campus into a micro-grid, which would make it self-sufficient in meeting energy requirements. The initiative is a reflection of the Jewish value, bal tashchit, to protect the Earth. Visit sdja.com.
