The Eleanore and John Zeltin Scholarship - Open Category
John Zeltin is an SCC Alum and Board Member of the SCC Educational Foundation. Mr. Zeltin, a resident of New York City, had few resources to finance his own education. “My father devoted his life to helping all who needed him. He didn’t have much money. I decided to get my AA Degree at Solano because it was affordable and the professors were excellent.” Following Solano, Mr. Zeltin transferred to Sacramento State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. After graduation, he secured a position with a financial firm in New York City that offered him support for continuing his education. As a result, he earned a Master’s Degree from Columbia University.
“Education was very important to my parents. My dad graduated from the University of Chicago and my mother completed her nursing education later in life. They stressed that education ensures a successful professional life.” This is one of several scholarships presented to honor Mr. Zeltin’s parents while helping to support deserving SCC students.
