Trustees’ Award winner: Making youthful dreams come true

Malika Murray Malika Murray realized from the time she was a teen that she wanted to make a difference for underrepresented young people, to help make their dreams come true.

She has a chance to do just that, thanks in large part to earning an $8,000 scholarship as a winner of the California State University Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement. Murray, a graduate student in Sacramento State’s Doctorate of Educational Leadership (Ed.D.) program, expects to graduate from the University in Spring 2017.

“It is my responsibility to combat those processes, theories, and power struggles that serve to oppress the underrepresented,” Murray says. “At the heart of my drive to lead others in school and in the community is my unswerving commitment to bettering the quality of their lives and their societies through education.”

The Trustees’ Awards were given to 24 students – one from each of the 23 CSU campuses and a special award for the top-scoring CSU-wide scholar – who have demonstrated superior academic performance, personal accomplishments, community service, and financial need.
