The Maribel Garcia Community Spirit Award for Remarkable Contributions to the Spirit of Humanity is given each year to a Cornell student for making a remarkable, creative specific contribution to the spirit of humanity.
This annual award honors the memory of dearly missed Cornell alum Maribel Garcia ’95, a vital friend and always a creative, inspiring and energetic member of her community. Maribel died tragically in a car accident in 1997, and we hope to honor her name and build a legacy of giving by rewarding one student each year for a “remarkable contribution to the spirit of humanity.” We believe creative, innovative contributions to the immediate community can spread outward and upward to make the world more unified, healthy, and happy for all humanity. It is with this spirit that we present the Maribel Garcia Award to one Cornell student each year, undergraduate or graduate.
