Sonora High graduate and KVML Reporter Alisha Cruz is saying farewell to the Motherlode.
Cruz was KVML´s Friday morning Newsmaker of the Day.
Cruz was raised in Tuolumne County and has been highly active in the community, most recently working with the YES Partnership of ATTCA. From her leadership roles with Friday Night Live, Red Ribbon Week, Every Fifteen Minutes, Youth Leadership Tuolumne County, Editor of the Sonora High School Newspaper, to being an accomplished pollster for our radio market, she has been a well recognized and positive influence in the community.
Last year, Cruz was a recipient of the Jaycee´s “Outstanding Young Californian Award” at a ceremony held in Los Angeles.
So why is she leaving?
“After two years of attending Columbia College, I´m leaving to pursue and further my education. My Major is Communications with a Minor in Public Relations” Cruz stated.
Cruz wants to thank everyone who mentored her and had an influence in her life. She has no idea if she will be returning to the Mother Lode as a resident, but it will always be her home.
The Newsmaker of the Day can be heard each weekday morning at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47 on AM-1450 KVML.
