The Julian Perez Memorial Scholarship provides college tuition assistance to a graduating, male senior(s) from Coral Gables Senior High School or MAST Academy.

About Julian Perez:

Julian had a successful career with Miami-Dade County for 35 years and is remembered by those who knew him as a gentleman as he was an incredibly loyal and kind man. Julian and his wife of 40 years, Mayra, lived in Coral Gables and loved their community. Throughout the years, both Mayra and Julian mentored young people through their volunteer efforts. Mayra is honored to carry on Julian’s legacy through this scholarship fund.
