My Healthy Eating Habits Essays
Local real estate agents Sunil Sethi and Steven Fong from Sunil
Sethi Real Estate have been heading the Dictionary and Thesaurus
giveaway to all 3rd Graders in New Haven Unified for the
past 7 years. That equates to a total of over 10,000 reference
books donated or over $20,000 spent. They continue to donate each
year because they want our students to succeed in school and
ultimately lead successful and productive lives. As local REALTORS
they understand the direct correlation between helping kids do
better in school and increasing home values.
They believe that increasing home values are a function of improving
school performance, improving neighborhoods, such as reducing crime,
and improving the home’s condition. The first two factors of which
are directly influenced when students do better in school.
This year they sponsored their 2nd annual literacy essay
challenge titled “I Know How to Eat Healthy”, which proceeded last
year’s challenge titled “I Know What I Want to do When I Graduate
From High School. They wanted to raise awareness and spark
discussion among the students about setting up a plan for their
future and what it takes for them to succeed. All the students who
submitted an essay received a recognition award and their essays
were published in an online compilation made available for all the
students to read.
year because of the economy, they’ve seen co-sponsors come and go.
This year they have 1 new-sponsor, The Office of County Supervisor,
Richard Valle, who represents the 2nd district.
Continuing their support are Kristie Turner of Kristie Turner
Insurance Agency and Risha Kilaru of Prospect Mortgage.
