For over 18 years, Constable Percy Medina, Atascosa Co. Precinct 1, served his community with dignity and respect. His oath was as strong as the oaks that shade the home he built for his family with the help of his loving wife, Roberta. Together they raised four children, teaching them to always give back to their community, to help those that desire to help themselves and to always thank God above for the blessings bestowed upon their family.
He not only spoke the words, but also fulfilled them through action.
Constable Medina began awarding two scholarships to seniors of Pleasanton and Poteet High Schools in 2010, but was able to increase it to four scholarships per year.
After his untimely passing in October of 2019, his family was able to award six scholarships from donations received locally and beyond, and though they were not able to hold a large fundraiser due to COVID-19 last year, they were able to raise enough money to award eight scholarships in 2021.
And now, with your help, they have a goal of awarding even more. On Oct. 23, 2021, his family will be hosting the first of what they hope to be an annual event.
The Inaugural CPM Poker Tournament benefiting The Constable Percy Medina Memorial Scholarship Fund will be taking place at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church Hall in Pleasanton. The intentions are to award as many scholarships as possible to well-deserving students to assist them in their future college or trade school career.
