“Portraits of Alumni Achievement”

Eduardo Medina, Jr. ‘85

“As a child, I never realized I was poor.”

Eduardo Medina, Jr.

Eduardo Medina ‘85, BA
Applebee Development Center Corporation

As the oldest of five children who grew up in the barrio of “El Santo Niño,” Medina loved school and worked hard because he did not want to live there for the rest of his life.

Education was Medina’s ticket to a better life. Since receiving his degree in 1985, he is the first one in his immediate family to have graduated from college.

After teaching for 11 years, Medina gravitated towards business and opened his own tutoring and day care center. He also runs his own construction company and only recently has gone into ranching.

An avid believer in learning, he has turned to experts in different areas to serve as mentors. Persistence, vision, and extreme optimism are but a few of the traits he believes have helped him become successful.
