Josi Juarez Memorial Scholarship
Josi Juarez was a long-time resident of Gardenland/Northgate and member of GNNA for many years. Josi was passionate about our community and realized the importance of community involvement. Along with being the Board Secretary of GNNA, Josi served on the GNNA scholarship committee, helped coordinate the Stanford Settlement May Day Fun Run, and worked on special projects for GNNA.
Josi passed away in 2013 and to honor Josi’s commitment to our community, GNNA is offering a special scholarship of $750.00 to applicants who demonstrate commitment to community service.
