Up to six $20,000 scholarships will be awarded. Eligibility requirements and the scholarship application can be found on the Foundation’s website www.munozfoundation.org.
The recipients of the award will be recognized on June 9th, 2013 at the Hall of Fame Dinner in Mason, Ohio.
Do you know a Greater Cincinnati Straight ‘A’ high school student? I’m not talking about a student who necessarily gets 100% on every test.

It is so wonderful to see young people being encouraged to make a difference in their world. More than 1200 Greater Cincinnati high school students from over 100 schools attended last October’s Anthony Munoz Foundation’ s Youth Leadership Seminar where they were challenged to come up with a community service project to spread kindness. Their ideas made such an impact.
Students at Ursuline Academy already make sandwiches that they donate for distribution through a local shelter and they have a club that knits scarves for those who need warmth. Now, each of those recipients will be getting a ‘love note’ attached to the gift that students made as part of their Youth Leadership Seminar project. It is all about uplifting those who can benefit from nurturing encouragement. I just love it! And by the way, I am told this was totally student driven.
