Sabrina Limjoco Arney Memorial Fund

$11,165 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 120 people in 34 months
Sabrina Arney passed away June 24, 2016 after a 15 month battle against brain cancer.  Through her trial, she remained positive and returned to work multiple times because she missed her students.  After an emergency surgery in January 2015 to remove the tumor, Sabrina eagerly returned to school to finish the school year with her students.  She returned in September 2015 even though she had a second surgery in July 2015.  Moreover she even taught through multiple rounds of chemotherapy and treatment still always keeping her students first.  Although she was having problems walking and communicating, she insisted on going to the 2016 Educating for Careers Conference in March.  This has been Sabrina's passion the past two decades working endless hours to assure Jordan High School students in Aspiration In Medical Services (AIMS) are given the academic and job skills needed for higher education and careers in the medical field.   Most of Sabrina's career was spent as the Lead Teacher of the AIMS program, a California Partnership Academy, where thousands of students can attest to the benefit they derived from the program and "Mrs. Arney".

To sustain Sabrina's legacy, I am starting a fund in her memory.  Eventually, I would like to set up a non-profit organization to continue support of AIMS students that Sabrina so dearly cared for.  I'm using this Go Fund Me campaign for seed money as a start.  I promise that every penny donated will go directly to student activities or individual scholarships, along with my own money, and her cash award from being Jordan High School's 2015-2016 Teacher of the year.  AIMS has been part of our family, and I will work with the existing and future AIMS teachers to assure this money and Sabrina's legacy educating students remains intact.  Thank you for all your love and support.

Sorry for taking so long to update everyone, but the timing is appropriate since we just awarded scholarships to four college bound AIMS graduates. The Gold Award, now the "Sabrina Arney Gold Award" for the student that best exemplifies AIMS was given to Fabiola. The Silver award for the highest GPA AIMS student was a tie so both Alesha and Clarissa were given a scholarship. The Bronze Award goes to the student with the most volunteer hours; that honor belongs to Elwin. Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients!

I am still working on turning this into an official non-profit organization before the end of this year. I'm doing good, but I seem to have a hard time making headway in some areas, and this is one of them.

I was asked to be part of the California Partnership Academy (CPA) Advisory Committee by the state education department. I've only been on a few conference calls so far, but I am honored to continue Sabrina's work not only with AIMS, but also to help whatever little I can for CPAs in general.

Sabrina was very proud of her students, and I appreciate you in helping me make this happen. Today marks the year anniversary of Sabrina's passing. A sad day, but I am focusing on how much she made a lot of her life and I was privileged to be part of it -- and how wonder that I, and all of us, can continue to support students that Sabrina so passionately cared about.

THANKS TO EVERYBODY FOR YOUR DONATIONS. Sorry it has been a while since I've communicated, but I took a two week vacation to go to Yellowstone on a trip with the kids Sabrina and I planned before her diagnosis, and a third week with the Pearce family to remember the time Sabrina wanted to spend with them last year right before her second surgery. The time off was rejuvenating, and now I am fully engaged with work again. I am so grateful for everyone's generosity and I will start working with the Jordan High School AIMS teachers to set up a scholarship and see how else the money might be used. Again, I promise every dime will go to students.

Wow! I'm very heartbroken to hear about your passing. I'm sorry that that devil named cancer took yet another great soul. You were an amazing teacher and mentor Mrs Arney. Because of you is why I decided to strive for my passion in the medical field. Thank you for everything, all the long talks, all the extra tutoring, all the chances and do overs, all the support and trust you instilled in me, and most important for always believing in me Mrs Arney. May your lovely soul rest in paradise and I promise to make you proud #lbjordanhighalumni #aimsalumni
