Thank you to Anna Ortiz, who included the Foundation in her estate to create a fund in the name of her brother, Leo A. Garcia. The Leo A. Garcia Memorial Fund will provide real dollars for tuition assistance St. Michael's High School students.
A little over $19,000 was allocated by the Foundation Board of Directors as a Named Scholarship fund—to be given out in the 16-17 school year to students with need in varying amounts from $2,000-$4,000. The other $100,000 was placed in the Leo A. Garcia Memorial Endowment. Earnings from the endowment will be allocated in the 17-18 school year.
With gratitude to Ms. Anna Ortiz, a long-time friend and supporter of the St. Michael's High School community and now a blessed member of our Horseman Honors team.
