Giving back to the community was the core of Jana Almendarez’s goal in life. After working at Old Town Elementary in Round Rock ISD, Jana became very active in the local community. On June 28, 2015, she was diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer. After her diagnosis, the Round Rock community rallied around Jana by both supporting the family and raising awareness to the cause through the #TeamJana movement. She lost her courageous battle on May 14, 2016. One of Jana’s very favorite things to do in life was watch her two boys play baseball. She loved her husband, sons and her entire family. To continue to honor Jana and the sport she loved so dearly, the Almendarez family would like to award a scholarship to a graduating Round Rock Dragon baseball player as well as another scholarship to a graduating high school baseball and softball player in Round Rock ISD. To continue to honor Jana and the sport she loved so dearly, the Almendarez family would like to award a $1,000.00 scholarship to a graduating Round Rock ISD baseball or softball player.
