Norbert Puente Memorial Scholarship Recipient

Lizette Ruiz, La Feria High School graduate of 2022

On Thursday, May 26th, the Norbert Puente Memorial Scholarship committee held a luncheon at J.C. Wings Restaurant to award their 2022 Scholarship. This year’s recipient was Lizette Ruiz, a La Feria High School graduate, and daughter of Armando Ruiz and Ida Garcia. Lizette will be attending Texas State Technical College this fall. Gloria Casas, representing the La Feria School Board, attended the luncheon as a guest speaker.

The family established the Memorial Scholarship to honor their brother, Norberto, who was passionate about inspiring young adults to continue their education after high school. Norbert’s family has been able to raise funds to award 1-2 scholarships every year and hope to keep helping La Feria graduates as they continue their education.
