Lorain County Community College Foundation Receives $50,000 Donation for Scholarships

The Lorain County Community College Foundation will be able to help even more students achieve their educational goals thanks to a generous donation of $50,000 by David Serrano to the Manuel Marin Serrano Scholarship Fund.  David, one of Manuel’s four surviving children, is a graduate of Lorain Admiral King High School and currently works as an attorney in California.

The Serrano family established the Manuel Marin Serrano Scholarship in 2005 as a tribute to their loving father and husband, Manuel.  Manuel Serrano was born in Laredo, Texas, but spent most of his childhood in Lorain, Ohio.  Following his graduation from Lorain High School in 1938, Manuel enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he served for three years and was awarded numerous awards and medals.  In 1947 Manuel married the love of his life, Amparo Magdaleno, and the couple raised four children in Lorain, Ohio, while Manuel worked at U.S. Steel.  Even though Manuel spent his retirement days in Southern California, he never forgot his roots.  This scholarship was created as a way to pass on Manuel’s passion for hard work and his belief in the power of a good education.  

The Manuel Marin Serrano Scholarship Fund is awarded annually to Lorain County Community College students who are involved in their community, with preference given to those from the Latino community, and those who demonstrate unmet financial need.  To date, seven students have received awards from the fund, and the scholarship has made a critical difference in their academic futures.
