On behalf of the Márquez-Greene family, we are thrilled to partner with CREC to offer this four year award to honor what should be the natural cycle of Ana Grace’s college years. As graduates of CREC schools (Jimmy and Nelba), we are enthusiastic champions of the specialized study, academic rigor and enhanced learning opportunities that come from being with others outside your own circle. We have such positive memories of our years as students and later as staff and believe this is exactly what the world needs right now.

We hope this scholarship helps to offset some of the financial burden higher education can leave students with and also serves as a reminder that perseverance, hard work and community can prevail—even in the most tragic of circumstances.

Ana Grace Márquez-Greene should be a member of the class of 2024. Her life was ended by gun violence. This scholarship in her memory will help send a creative, a scholar and a brilliant young person out into the world in her place- right into the halls of an academic institution. May these halls be changed by the voices of our young people. And may we all recognize our responsibility to help them all. We owe so much to CREC in forming our worldview and hope—it is from this deep well we drew for this idea.
