For the 20th consecutive year, the Spanish American Club, Inc. has awarded Scholarships to 34 students. Since beginning the program in 1993, the club has given over $20,000 to help area students. Scholarships are given on the basis of applications submitted through their high schools and a series of interviews with a scholarship committee chaired by Herman Santa and co-chaired by Nancy Rozon, Dr. Joseph Wasdovich, Fe Valderuten, Melissa Bonet and Isa Bryson.

One of this year winners is Samuel Villa. He was interviewed by the scholarship committee and was asked several questions concerning her goals and objectives and why she deserved the scholarships. She was selected as the 3rd. winner in 2014, from more that 11 students who applied for the scholarship of the club. The awards are presented each year by the club and are based on grades, academic accomplishments and economic needs.

Samuel was born in Mexico. His parents, Ascención and Sofia Villa were also born in Mexico, and are now living in Stuart. Samuel received a diploma (GED) from Indian River State College. He will attend Indian River State College and will be majoring in Horticulture and Landscape. He has been awarded one of our $750 scholarships.
