Morton Ranch High School Senior Felisa Cantu was recently selected as the 2011 Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards Gold Medallion winner in the Community Service category of the Houston Region.
The Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards annually honor young Latino leaders with $1,000 educational grants for their college education or to fund a community service effort. The award categories include: Business, Community Service, Education, Engineering and Mathematics, Healthcare and Science. The awards are divided into twelve different regions across the country: Los Angeles, Houston, New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Dallas, Miami, Northern California, Denver and Phoenix.
Three recipients are selected for each category (Gold, Silver and Bronze Medallion) in each of the regions and special recognition ceremonies are held with local business, education and community leaders to pay tribute to their accomplishments. All recipients are then eligible to be selected as their category’s national recipient and receive a laptop and a paid trip to be recognized at the National Youth Awards ceremony in January 2012 (location TBA).
