During the 2020 Cinco de Mayo Celebration, we awarded two $1000 scholarships.  These scholarship funds were raised at our Cinco de Mayo Celebration last year.  This year’s scholarship recipients are:

  • Laisha Agapito Romero – Laisha is going to be a sophomore at Mankato State University in the fall. She is studying nursing and minoring in alcohol and drug studies.

  • Athziri Marcial – Athziri is going to be starting her first year at St. Olaf in the fall. She just returned from a gap year in Brazil with the Rotary Youth Exchange program. Athziri is undecided on her major, but thinking about biology, chemistry, or computer science.

We look forward to having this celebration in person again in the future!
