Growing up is hard. Growing up after experiencing the loss of a parent can be devastating. The German Heredia Scholarship is for graduating seniors who have experienced the loss of a parent or guardian. The loss of a parent can have a serious impact on your development. There are emotional and financial stresses and a real sense of loss. The unique challenges the student endures sometimes makes excelling academically an afterthought. This scholarship is to reward the perseverance of the human spirit and to reduce the financial stress of tuition,books, and fees.
Tristan is an inspiration to everyone he encounters. His perserverance and positive attitude is a blessing to our community and his family. The sky is the limit for this young man and the Heredia House Foundation is honored to present him with this award.
He recently graduated from Astronaut High School in Titusville, Fl and is now attending the University of Miami as a star High Jumper on the track and field team. GO CANES!!!.
