Harlingen Cardinal receives local scholarship
HARLINGEN, Texas -- Jerry Hirst coached the Harlingen High School tennis team for decades.
His impact is still being felt even after his passing last March.
Hirst had a passion for finding scholarships to student-athletes he knew, coached, and mentored.
The Hirst family, wanting to continue Jerry's legacy, created the Jerry Hirst Memorial Scholarship.
James Ichiro Tanamachi is the first recipient for this $2,500 scholarship.
A total achieved thanks to the help of more than 150 donors. All people Jerry impacted throughout his life.
For Ichiro, and future cardinal tennis players, this scholarship goes a long way financially at such an important time in their lives.
