Academic excellence, a historic visit to a regional landmark and a fashion show by a local product are among this week’s good news.

Former Solano College volleyball star gets honor

Solano Community College volleyball standout Natalie Perry won the Scholar Athlete Women’s Honor Roll honor from the 2013 California Community College Athletic Association.

Perry, a sports medicine program major, maintained a 3.77 grade point average during her time at the college. She was an all-conference player twice before transferring to Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colo., where she plans to complete her bachelor’s degree in sports management.

“To win such an honor, recognizing my achievements as a student-athlete was amazing,” Perry said in a press release. “My peers and I worked hard to maintain good grades, develop strong work ethics on and off the court and enjoyed volunteering in the community. To receive an award for doing what has enhanced my life is icing on the cake.”

RHS senior lands big scholarships

Rodriguez High School senior Adena Maier was accepted to American University’s School for International Service in Washington, D.C., receiving a dean’s scholarship there in the amount of $15,000, renewable for four years.

She also received a $5,000 scholarship the Atsuhiko Taateuchi Memorial Scholarship through the Seattle Foundation, which is renewable for three years.

Maier is the managing editor of The Stampede school newspaper at RHS and was on the girls varsity golf team. She is a member of the National Honor Society and is the daughter of Fairfield’s Brent and Mari Maier.

Congratulations to Adena.

Fairfield woman graduates Thursday

Janae Roxanne Bassignani of Fairfield will graduate Thursday from Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz.

She will receive a bachelor’s degree in filmmaking practices from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. Bassignani attended Holy Spirit School in Fairfield and graduated from Justin Siena High School in Napa in 2010.

She is the daughter of Mitch and Amy Bassignani.

Mowers Goheen Museum namesake visits

Joanne Goheen of Vallejo, whose father is the namesake for the Mowers Goheen Museum at Pena Adobe Park in Vacaville, visited Pena Adobe recently and recalled the restoration of the building and its ultimate dedication in June 1967.

The land was part of the original huge land grant to Juan Manuel Vaca and Juan Felipe Pena under a Mexican land grant in 1843 that was down to 212 acres in the early 1930s. In 1947, Maria Dolores Lyon, of the Pena family, deeded to her children the land on which the Pena Adobe stands. They sold it to Solano County Supervisors Delbert Mowers and William F. Goheen – Joanne Goheen’s father – in 1957. Mowers and Goheen deeded it, along with some land, to the Solano County Historical Society in 1959 and a committee began to restore the building. The work happened from 1963 to 1965.

Joanne Goheen said she remembers attending the 1967 dedication. Her father was a Solano County supervisor for the 2nd District, Vallejo.

Ex-resident to host fashion show in Oakland

Kym Stylz, who grew up in Fairfield and was profiled in an April 26 Daily Republic article, will host a fashion show May 15 at the Zarif Soulye Fashion Gallery, 2274 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland.

She was born Kimmeshann Sherman in the Los Angeles area, but moved to Fairfield as a baby and was raised by her uncle and aunt, James and Ida Singletary. She attended Amy Blanc Elementary School, Dover Middle School and Fairfield High School.
