Grant Arnold played foot­ball but his first love was wrestling. He grad­u­ated from Davis High School and fur­thered his wrestling ca­reer at Modesto Ju­nior Col­lege. He was in­ducted into the MJC Hall of Fame. He then went on to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and wres­tled. He mar­ried and had three sons: Ja­son, Bryan and Grant; all were out­stand­ing ath­letes fol­low­ing in their dad’s foot­steps.

Ja­son Arnold was a wrestler, foot­ball, and base­ball player. He ex­celled in all three sports, but his fa­vorite was base­ball. He grad­u­ated from Escalon High in 1991. Ja­son has three daugh­ters, Alexan­dra, Madi­son and Hunter.

“We would like to thank you for your gen­er­ous sup­port over the past 10 years,” noted one of the event or­ga­niz­ers, Bryan Arnold. “With the earn­ings from the past schol­ar­ship din­ners, we have been able to award a to­tal of 108 lo­cal high school stu­dents a schol­ar­ship in the amount of $1000 each.”

Raf­fle, silent auc­tion, and live auc­tion items are cur­rently be­ing sought. Any size gift or do­na­tion will be gladly ac­cepted. Con­tact Bryan Arnold if you want to make a do­na­tion.
