The Office of Student Services would like to congratulate Patricio J. Estupinan from South Miami Senior High School, recipient of the Jose Regueiro Scholarship. The scholarship will cover the complete tuition cost of any A.A. or A.S. program here at FNU.
Estupinan graduated from his class with a 3.5 GPA and participated in a number of co-curricular activities including the Spanish Honor and Spanish Spirit Societies.
Mr. Estupinan was awarded the Jose Regueiro Scholarship based, in part, on his essay “The Importance of a College Degree,” and the recommendation of his Guidance Counselor, Rodolfo J. Carbajales.
In his essay, Estupinan wisely characterizes higher education as an “investment” in his future and warns that short-sighted goals often lead to short-lived results. For Estupinan, a college degree is more than just a piece of paper; it’s the key to social and economic freedom, the opportunity to pursue a life of peaceful prosperity.
In his letter of recommendation, Mr Carbajales writes:
Patricio is an extraordinary young man with many talents and an excellent role model not only for his peers, but also for everyone with whom he comes in contact.
We look forward to Estupinan’s student leadership and academic enthusiasm here at Florida National University.
