In addition to the scholarship funds, he will be presented with a commemorative medallion, and his college president will also receive special recognition.

“Thank you for all the support I have received at MiraCosta College. I could not have done this without the help and guidance of this wonderful community. I am and honored and humbled to be recognized for my academic achievements and to be the first student in Phi Theta Kappa at MiraCosta College to receive the All-USA Academic Team scholarship” explains Jaureguy.
