Endowment Expands Scholarship Made in Daughter's Memory

Lesley Diane Sanchez had big dreams. She wanted to be a lawyer someday, perhaps even president of the United States. Her dreams, and those of her parents for her, were cut short in 1993 when Leslie died just two years into her studies at UC Davis.

To honor their daughter’s passion for education and political science, Richard and Patricia Sanchez established an endowment to fund the Lesley Diane Sanchez Scholarship. The award supports women with financial need majoring in political science and excelling academically.
