Gulf Coast Supply Extends Carlos Perez Memorial Scholarship

Gulf Coast Supply & Manufacturing (“Gulf Coast Supply”), the trusted name for metal roofing for 25 years, has extended the Carlos Perez Memorial Scholarship. To honor Perez’s memory, Gulf Coast Supply began the scholarship in 2021. It will now extend through 2024.

Given through the Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Association (FRSA) Educational & Research Foundation, the scholarship awards $2,500 to a deserving individual selected by the Foundation Trustees each year.

Perez was a dedicated account manager at Gulf Coast Supply for over nine years. He was well educated about the metal roofing industry and always eager to help his customers. His examples of compassion, patience and sincere care for his work were easily recognized by his coworkers and customers alike.

“Carlos was not only an incredible salesman; he was also a kind person of rarity. He was a friend to all who met him, genuine when asking how things were going, optimistic, and always smiling,” said Harry Yeatman, President of Gulf Coast Supply.
