Jordan Castellanos '16
Hispanic Scholarship Fund Student of the Year
Jordan A. Castellanos from Indio, CA, received the Toyota Student of the Year Award from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund at the HSF’s annual “Leaders in Education” ceremony in September 2011.
“My parents had always instilled in me the importance and value of an education,” Castellanos told the gathering at the J.W. Marriott in Los Angeles. “The older I’ve become, I’ve come to the realization that education is not only for one’s self but opens many doors so that with it we can help others. I hope to be back at this event in a few years not only as a graduate of the University of Redlands but also as a graduate of medical school.”
Founded in 1975 and based in San Francisco, HSF is the nation’s leading Hispanic higher education fund and has awarded over $330 million in scholarships over the past 36 years.
