2nd Annual Medina Family Scholarships awarded
Thursday / June 2, 2016
Alfonso Medina Jr. came to the Marshalltown Community College campus last week to award the second annual Medina Family Scholarship to two MCC students. Recipients of the $400 scholarship are Cole Langenbau and Olga Avalos.
“I created this scholarship to give back to Marshalltown. I graduated from Marshalltown High School and went to Marshalltown Community College so I wanted to create something that helped this community,” says Alfonso Medina Jr. “Thanks to our business ventures in the area we will continue to promote good citizenship and values for other businesses to follow as they progress in this community as well.”
“Being selected as one of the recipients of the Medina scholarship means a road to my future,” says Olga Avalos. “I want to continue my education and not let anything stop me from achieving who I want to be. I want to one day remember all those obstacles that I had to surpass to become the person who people look up to.”
Cole said he was inspired by this scholarship because, like the Medinas, he’d like to someday share his success with others by giving back in the community.
