Velasquez parents

Felipe & Maria Velasquez (by their family)

The Felipe and Maria Velasquez Memorial Scholarship* was established to honor Mexican-American immigrants who strived to instill the importance of family, education, community involvement and volunteer service to assist others in need. As parents, they instilled to their children that education was of utmost importance in order to succeed in their future. After retiring, both Felipe and Maria Velasquez continued to volunteer in their community into their 80s.
