2022 Manuel I. Garcia Work Ethic Scholarship Award

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2022 Manuel I. Garcia Work Ethic Scholarship Award, Derek Hernandez and Aiden Gonzalez. The Manuel I. Garcia Award is an annual award named after the founder of Mira’s Sports and More and is presented to Moody High School students who exhibit an extraordinary work ethic throughout high school. This year the award was presented by J.J. Morales, grandson of Manuel I. Garcia.

Moody High School has been a bedrock of Mira’s Sports and More’s foundation. Mira’s first store was located down the street from Moody High School. Mira’s Founder, Manuel I Garcia, was a longtime and loyal fan of Moody Magic. Moody Baseball was his inspiration for wanting to provide top-quality equipment, making certain that the young players on his beloved Foy H. Moody Trojan Baseball Team were able to compete at the top of their game.
