This scholarship is named after a beloved member of the Tropical Water Pool’s family, Veronica Munoz. In March of 2021, Veronica lost her battle to Covid-19. She is remembered by her husband, her five children, and our team for her vibrant spirit, caring nature and inspiring work ethic.
Veronica is originally from Guadalajara, Mexico where she grew up in extreme poverty. She became a mom at a young age and devoted herself to providing the best life for her kids here in Arizona. Because of her experiences living in Mexico, she had a great passion for helping those in need and was always giving back to the community. She was a firm believer in education and was constantly raising money for the school her children attended, Queen of Peace Catholic School.
Tropical Water Pools believes in hard work, education, innovative thinking, and most of all, giving back. Veronica embodied these traits in everything she did, day in and day out. She did whatever she could to give back to the community. In her honor, we want to provide a $1,000 scholarship to a hardworking Arizona student of Hispanic descent to help further their college education.
