A "2013 LEADERSHIP SERIES SALUTE" Goes out to Bush High School's Juan Vasquez for being named a 2013 Dell Scholar

Bush High School’s Juan Vasquez named a 2013 Dell Scholar, earns a $20,000 Scholarship

FORT BEND ISD - Bush High School senior, Juan Vasquez, was named a 2013 Dell Scholar earning a $20,000 scholarship from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation. He is among more than 300 students nationwide honored among the Dell Scholars Program Class of 2013.

Juan is the second person in his family to be named a Dell Scholar. His sister, Raisa, was a 2007 Dell Scholar and participant of the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program. Like his sister, Juan is also a participant of the AVID program, which has prepared him for college readiness and success in a global society. Many AVID students are first-generation college goers. Although Juan is among that group of students, his parents still stressed the importance of education and made sure that he and his siblings completed their school assignments, homework and became actively involved in school activities.

During his high school career, Juan participated in DECA, serving as the 2012-2013 vice president and the 2011-2012 alumni president. He was also a member of the Technology Student Association, Youth in Philanthropy (YIP) and played for the Bush Broncos’ Junior Varsity Football team as an offensive tackle for two years. In his spare time, he volunteered for such organizations as Habitat for Humanity and the Houston Humane Society.

Juan will attend Stephen F. Austin University in the fall, where he will major in International Business and minor in Mathematics.

The Dell Scholars Program is an initiative of the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and provides its students with resources and mentoring beyond initial financial assistance to ensure they have the support they need to obtain a college degree. The program looks beyond academic performance and grades and rewards students for their individuality, unique experiences in and outside of the classroom, need for financial assistance, willingness to work hard, and determination to succeed through higher education.
