Several years ago Steve Soraparu from State Farm Insurance had the inspiration to create a college scholarship fund to benefit local Latino students. Steve's original vision was to offer Latino students from our community financial support to continue their education once they graduated from high school. The fund was originally set up with $2000 in seed money from State Farm Insurance. The next year ten Monroe businesses and the Everett Community College Foundation added dollars for a total of $5,000.

Those funds have now been expended. The goal of the Monroe Public Schools Foundation is to continue with the original vision and seek donations from anyone interested in donating to support funding for the Latino Achievement Scholarship Award to be awarded annually to local students. These students will be honored each year at Senior Awards night held at MHS. If you or anyone you know might be interested in making a donations towards the Latino Achievement Scholarship Award you can do so by clicking on the pay link below. Any donations made on this pay link will be donated directly to the Latino Achievement Scholarship Award.

If you would prefer to contribute via check, please send your donation to the following address. Please also mention "Latino Achievement Scholarship" either in the memo line of the check, or by attaching a separate note.
