LOT 10: JUAN NEVAREZ EDUCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
Juan Nevarez was a dreamer. But the difference between Juan and many at that time was his ability to turn his dreams into reality and share that opportunity with others. He had one requirement for his children, they must finish college and earn their diploma.
The Juan Nevarez Memorial Scholarship helps college students whose parents work in vineyards and wineries achieve their academic and lifelong dreams. Since 2015, the Vineyard Team has awarded college scholarships based on academic excellence, financial need and community involvement. The majority of awardees are first generation college students. This funding supports students and their families in achieving their dreams of successful graduation from school to pursue a professional career.
We have an opportunity to invest in education that impacts lives and affects change for future generations. We can increase the number of scholarship recipients. We can create an even more robust scholarship program that will shift from annual to multi-year scholarships with a mentoring and coaching component and a cash incentive for those scholars who obtain their degree.
Opportunities to make dreams reality. Opportunities to get support and encouragement. Opportunities to succeed.
