Scholarship Winner for this year is Andy Garcia

img_4364Andy Garcia, a senior at Granite Hills High School of Porterville Unified, has been chosen as the 2019 College Night Scholarship Award Recipient.

Andy has been accepted to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to pursue his degree in Biology, a first step towards his career goal of becoming a Surgical Oncologist.  He will be the first in his family to attend a University and he credits College Night with providing him the opportunity to learn about his post-secondary choices and other critical information like how to complete applications and financial aid available.

Andy is a very motivated young man and had many honors, activities, and community services listed on his application.  Among those that stood out to the committee, was his effort to found “Grizzlies Fight Cancer” a club at his high school for students and staff who, like him, have had a family member or loved one battle cancer.  Through the club, he has inspired those on his campus to donate time and resources to support his community cancer treatment center.  Andy was also chosen to be a 2019 Coca Cola Scholar, a very distinguished national award given to only 150 seniors each year in the United States. 

Last year, Andy was recognized on the TCOE & KSEE 24 news segment “Your Character Matters” for his leadership in organizing a prom at his school for Special Needs students.  Needless to say, he blew the committee away with his commitment, determination, and generous heart.  We truly believe he is deserving of this award and will make the most of this scholarship as he works towards achieving his goal of helping others beat cancer!
