Auburn woman earns Saint Martin’s University Trustee Scholarship

Saint Martin’s University has named Sandra Trevino a recipient of its 2018-2019 Trustee Scholarship, among the most significant honors given by the university. Each year, the scholarships are awarded to outstanding transfer students who exemplify the university’s commitment to academic excellence, community service and the Benedictine values that form the bedrock of the Saint Martin’s community.

Trustee Scholarships are reserved for students transferring to Saint Martin’s from a community college, and who either have completed or are completing their associate degree with a 3.5 grade point average or higher. Each Trustee Scholar will receive a $26,000 scholarship, which will be divided among four semesters of study.

Trevino, from Auburn and originally from Tehuacan, Mexico, is a social work major from Green River College. She attended Thomas Jefferson High School in Auburn and, after graduating, worked in the aerospace industry for a few years.

At Green River College, she majored in criminal justice and minored in forensic science. She was accepted into the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and served as an intern detention officer at the Pierce County Juvenile Detention Center, where she mentored children in need of guidance.

Trevino, who is fluent in English and Spanish, hopes to become a social worker and serve the Latino community. She is a first-generation college student.
