Original post made by Chuck Deckert, Pleasanton Valley, on Aug 18, 2022

The Pleasanton-Tulancingo Sister City Association recently awarded a Bob Athenour scholarship to Valeria Gonzalez a recent Las Positas graduate who has been accepted to San Jose State University. She is the first in her family to attend college. Valeria has worked at Downtown Cafe for several years and served Bob Athenour often when he was alive. They had a special relationship and he pushed her to further herself by going to college. The committee received a matching donation so the scholarship will go a long way assisting Valeria financially in college. Jorge Victoria the president of the sister city association presented her the check.
