Victor Meneses of Miami Southridge High School was presented the Diego Family Spartan Scholarship Award during the school’s annual awards ceremony on May 16.
The criteria for the one year, $2,500 award includes excellence in academics, dedication to community service and well-rounded participation in extracurricular activities. The recipient also must be attending a four-year college outside of the tri-county area.
Meneses, who will be attending the University of Florida to study engineering, will be entering college with 15 college credits that he earned while in high school.
The scholarship was created by the Diego Family (Miami Southridge alumni) to annually recognize one Miami Southridge student who exhibits the Spartan Spirit and to help encourage and assist them in their efforts when leaving home for a well-rounded college experience.
