Maria Totushek Memorial Scholarship
Maria Totushek was an admired Folsom community member with a passion for soccer and a heart for the youth who desired to play it. Maria was actively involved at both Vista del Lago High School and Folsom High School, where her daughters participated in athletics.
After Maria’s first battle and triumph over cancer, she dedicated her efforts to give back to the Folsom community that supported and loved her family during such a difficult time. Maria led the charge by establishing the ‘Kick It Clinic’ for charity purposes and college scholarships. The clinic raised money for local families in need of support; the scholarship provides funds for Folsom high school seniors.
Maria passed away in the spring of 2015. Students, school district faculty and staff, and members of the Folsom community mourned her passing. Contributions were received with the creation of the Maria Totushek Memorial Scholarship Fund. Although Maria’s passion and generosity cannot be replaced, the Folsom Athletic Association wishes to honor her memory with this annual athletic scholarship.
