In 1995, the James Medina Scholarship was established in memory of Mr. Medina’s brother, James Medina, to assist Hispanic high school students with the burden of post high school education costs.
The scholarship is offered to deserving Hillsborough County Hispanic students and to students from Miami South West High School in Miami Florida.
Students must have a 3.0 GPA with an emphasis on athletics and / or theater arts. The scholarship is awarded annually to deserving students whom exhibit academic, community and leadership qualities.
Since 1995 Mr. Medina has committed $50,000 to this scholarship.
