Hayward student selected for Junior Giant scholarship

Submitted By Anna Stock-Matthews

Dedicated to top performance on and off the field, the Giants Community Fund sponsors Annual Education Day at AT&T Park to honor outstanding participants of the Junior Giants program. Using baseball as a common denominator, Junior Giants is dedicated to empowering young people. Outstanding participants of the program who have been selected to receive a Harmon and Sue Burns Scholarship will be honored on August 11 during a pre-game home plate ceremony. Among them is Leonardo Macedo of Hayward.

Each year, 10 eighth-grade Junior Giants participants and scholars are chosen to receive the $2,500 scholarship based on their leadership skills, character, academic potential and program involvement. Prior to the pre-game ceremony honoring the scholars, the scholars and their families will hear from San Francisco Giants Alum and Special Assistant J. T. Snow about the importance of education. Macedo will receive his scholarship after graduating high school and completing the program.
