Hometown Pasco for June 26

Tonty "Manny" Rutinel, Wiregrass Ranch High School senior, was recently awarded a $500 scholarship from Cypress Creek Chiropractic and Wellness at the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce Student Pride Awards Breakfast.

"This is our way of giving a hard-working high school student a gift that can never be taken away — education," said chiropractor Micah Richeson. "We are passionate about education and are so thrilled to see students like Tonty Rutinel dedicate themselves to achieving their goals and dreams."

Each year, outstanding students and athletes from each Wesley Chapel school are chosen to be honored for their school pride and community involvement, as well as athletic excellence. Chamber members work together with the schools to plan and sponsor this event. During the breakfast, the chamber awards scholarships to qualifying high school seniors who are chosen by their schools. This year 118 students were recognized.

In addition to Rutinel, other scholarship winners were Mario Giannazzo, Miroslav Sanader, Samuel Henninger and Courtney Prengaman from Wesley Chapel High School; and Emily Payne, Berlin Waters and Ermias Bireda from Wiregrass Ranch High School.

"There is no more important investment we can make than in our next generation of leaders," Richeson said. "The family and staff at Cypress Creek Chiropractic wish them all the best with their college experience and beyond."
