GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) – A local West Michigan senior was recently awarded the Evans Scholarship, which means his tuition and housing will be covered for four years at a state college of his choice. The Evans Scholarship goes to students who have a strong record as a golf caddie, excellent grades, financial need, and outstanding character. This worthy winner is Jorge Garcia from Wyoming High School who is a participant for First Tee of West Michigan.
Jorge plans to attend the University of Michigan and pursue a degree in Computer Engineering. He is a first generation college student and says that going to college and earning a degree is his way of giving back to his family since his parents left Mexico to come to America to give him and his siblings a better life.
Congratulations Jorge! You’re going to do amazing things!
