Hernandez Medical/Engineering Scholarship Information
This scholarship is awarded to students choosing a college program in the medical or engineering fields.  It is in honor of Greg Hernandez, who battled ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), which affected his ability to continue working in the engineering field as a mechanical designer.  It is also in recognition of our son, Jesse, who passed away from an undiagnosed brain tumor. Both diseases are capable of robbing someone of fine and large motor skills, rendering them dependent on others.  This scholarship celebrates: the profession that Greg loved; the recognition of the opportunity to help others in the global community through medical or engineering needs; and the value and importance of a college education and community service.
