Rebeca Siguenza, a freshman at Flagler College, has been awarded a scholarship for $1,000 provided through the Hispanic Heritage Council of St. Johns County.
“I am so glad to have won the scholarship,” said Siguenza, who is studying business administration at Flagler. “I am always happy to help the Hispanic community when someone needs it.”
Siguenza was awarded the scholarship for her efforts in helping the Hispanic community in Saint Augustine by volunteering her time as a translator for many families in the area.
The Hispanic Heritage Council of St. Johns County is an organization designed to benefit the Hispanic community and preserve its heritage through arts, education and community awareness, through partnerships with local high schools, community colleges, universities and businesses. The HHC is currently working to create a scholarship for Flagler students.
