The John Rodriquez-Kranz Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to the memory of John Francisco Rodriquez-Kranz. His ideals and values exemplified his compassion, generosity, and dedication to God, family, Davis High School, and the greater Yakima community.

His belief, that every individual is important and that it is everyone’s responsibility to help others, exemplifies his desire to make the world a better place.
This one-time scholarship benefits students prevailing over adversity through personal growth. The award varies from year-to-year, however an award winner can expect $1,000.
