Carolyna Guillen of Miami Southridge High School received the Diego Family Spartan Scholarship Award at the school’s annual awards ceremony on May 15.
The criteria for the one year $2,500 award includes excellence in academics, dedication to community service and wellrounded participation in extracurricular activities. The recipient also must be attending a four-year college outside of the tri-county area.
Carolyna will be attending the University of Florida to study Cell Science and Microbiology. She will be entering college with over 30 college credits that she earned while in high school.
The scholarship was created by the Diego Family (Miami Southridge alumni) to recognize annually one Miami Southridge student who exhibits the Spartan Spirit and to help encourage and assist them in their efforts when leaving home for a wellrounded college experience.
