Sierra High senior Anna Cardenas is one of 51 student-athletes to be awarded a scholarship by the Sac-Joaquin Section.

All scholarship award winners and the six SJS Model Coaches will be recognized over a breakfast ceremony at Hutchins Street Square in Lodi on Thursday starting at 9 a.m. SJS Hall of Famer and former Olympian Suzy Powell is the keynote speaker.

Two student-athletes, Andrew Grabowski of Vacaville Christian and Breanna Sewell of Vacaville, have earned Clarke Coover Scholarships, which awards $1,500. Six, three boys and three girls, are $1,000 winners. Cardenas is among the 43 getting $600. In all, the SJS is divvying out $35,800 in scholarship money. More than $25,000 of it was generated through the volleyball and basketball Foundation Games.

Cardenas is the 2013 Valley Oak League singles champion and All-Area Girls Tennis Player of the Year. She is a four-year player for the Timberwolves’ tennis team, participated in track for three years and basketball for one. 

Cardenas is even more decorated off the courts.

Boasting a 4.28 GPA, she ranks No. 2 in her class. Cardenas has earned the AP Scholar Award, Kiwanis Academic Award and is a four-year Lobo Gold student for posting 4.0-and-higher GPAs with perfect attendance and behavior.

In addition, she helped found Journalism Tech, is a member of the Debate Club and participated in the Stanford Education Program for Gifted Youth and National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine. 

Cardenas is still undecided on where to attend college and plans to study broadcast journalism, veterinary science or computer science.
