Victor Garcia Memorial Scholarship Awards
Yesterday the Victor Garcia Memorial Scholarship to two Latino/Hispanic students to help them continue their studies.
As part of Del Pueblo, Inc., Victor personally took community members lacking transportation access to their medical, immigration, and legal appointments at no cost, as well as interpreted and translated for Spanish-speakers, explaining the complexities of navigating a new way of life. Victor spent every day of his life as if it were his last — with energy, optimism, and compassion for others,” according to a statement from Antioch. His passion for life, love, and justice and his strong spirit made him a unique individual who positively touched the lives of many. As a true advocate for Hispanic/Latino rights, he encouraged youth to continue their studies and never give up. Victor knew that a well-informed, educated community will grow and gain strength; therefore, we present this financial support in the name of Victor Garcia to continue his legacy in the belief that knowledge is power, and education will enrich our community for generations to come.
The presentation of the scholarships will be at the St. Therese’s Hispanic Festival on September 9th,2023 in Springfield, Ohio. More details on the time of the award(s) will be given.
