Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
— Nelson Mandela

Justin Sanchez was a true believer in this very idea, that through education he could change the world. He valued his own education as both an utmost priority and blessing. In view of his education as the catalyst to a purposeful contribution, Justin chose to study philosophy at UCLA, in hopes of one day attending law school. 

After Justin's sudden passing in the spring of 2017, his parents Johnny and Denise created The Justin M. Sanchez Memorial for Higher Education. Their hope is that through Justin's legacy of generosity and love for others, his passion for education will live on. 

The Justin M. Sanchez Memorial for Higher Education affords students like Justin to achieve their most ambitious goals through education.
