Thank you for considering a donation to the Sacramento Press Club's journalism scholarship program. The Sacramento Press Club, a nonprofit, public benefit 501(c)(3) corporation, has been awarding scholarships to journalism students in California since 1974. Your tax deductible donation will help us continue to support the next generation of California journalists. A receipt for your donation will be mailed to your credit card billing address. The Sacramento Press Club is proud to honor Earl "Squire" Behrens, Jean Stephens, Jerry Gillam and Nereida Skelton with journalism scholarships permanently named in their honor. In 2014 we are also pleased to honor Dan Walters, Kathleen Beasley and K.W. Lee.

Jean Stephens Jean Stephens, the long-time Secretary-Treasurer of the Sacramento Press Club and retired Sacramento City College journalism instructor who helped thousands of journalism students become professional journalists over a 30-year career. 
Jerry GillamJerry Gillam, a 35-year veteran of the Capitol press corps.  He is remembered for his knowledgeable political reporting in the Los Angeles Times' Sacramento bureau, his friendly mentoring of new Capitol reporters and his larger-than-life sense of humor.  
Nereida Skelton Nereida Skelton was a beloved journalism teacher for more than three decades. She was the advisor to the McClatchy High School student newspaper, where she served as a mentor to many outstanding students. Her straightforward approach to news and politics also had an influence across the nation, as her husband George called her his "secret editor" for his Los Angeles Times political column. Community college students who are transferring to a four year college will be given special consideration for this scholarship.
