A memorial fund was established by the family and friends of Armando Mendez (1975-1994) as a tribute to the life of this promising young student.
Armando was pursuing a career in the field of architecture at the College of DuPage.
He was a 1993 graduate of Aurora Central Catholic High School where he participated in football, track, tennis and wrestling.
Armando Mendez was a role model for younger students, an inspiring “big brother” to those who knew him.
Scholarships from this fund are awarded to graduates of Aurora Central Catholic High School.
Created in 1994, the fund was established as an endowment in 1998.
