SBVC Student Trainer Earns Scholarship

Anicca Anguiano, a two-year member of the San Bernardino Valley College athletic training program, was named a 2020 recipient of the California Community College Athletic Training Student Scholarship as chosen by the California Community College Athletic Trainers Association.

Anguiano will be transferring to the University of La Verne in the fall to continue her studies and training as an athletic trainer.

In his nomination letter, SBVC head trainer Keith Candelaria wrote, "Anicca has proven to be the most reliable student we have even as she maintained a full schedule of other obligations. Anicca works a full-time job at a local business as well as maintains a full­time class schedule. Maintaining all these responsibilities, Anicca was still able to stay consistent with her volunteer hours, remain punctual with her committed times, and work without taking days or times off from her schedule. Her time management skills, punctuality, and commitment to see all her duties through speaks volumes on her ability to becoming a successful student within the field of athletic training."

According to the nomination requirements, head trainers should nominate students based on dedication, work ethic, skill, collegiality, and need.

In his nomination letter, Candelaria noted that, "She also looks to become the first college graduate in her family and setting a positive example for her younger siblings."
