The Adrian A. Martinez Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Adrian's family to honor the life of Adrian Martinez, Concord-Carlilse High School (CCHS) Class of 2002. Adrian's humility, gentle and caring nature, and love of learning inspired the lives of all he met. He selflessly gave of himself to all who sought his help, whether academically as a gifted math student, or athletically as a champion distance runner. He cherished his friends and family and was loved universally. He led quietly and by example, both at CCHS and at Williams College, where he graduated with the Class of 2006.

Adrian's parents, Angel and Frankie, his brothers, Lucas and Julian, and his sister, Olivia, established the Adrian A. Martinez Memorial Scholarship Fund to commemorate his passion for distance running and his devotion to learning. It is their sincere hope that his kindness, humility, giving nature, sense of purpose and commitment and inspirational leadership will be reflected in all recipients of this annual award.
