The Linda Pedraza Educational Scholarship

 

Each year the San Antonio Claims Association awards cash scholarships to members and children of members who are entering college or are already current undergraduates.

 

Linda Pedraza, 7/6/50 - 5/30/06, was an important part of our association for many years and was loved by so many of us.  Linda held every office possible in the association and most more than once.  Whether it was the Scholarship Committee, Seminars, or Vegas Night , Linda was always there to help.   At our Monthly membership meeting on July 11th  2006, the membership voted unanimously to dedicate our annual scholarship in Linda's memory, in recognition of all of her contributions and many years of dedication to the San Antonio Claims Association.
