The $2500.00 and $2000.00 scholarships were selected from 41 applicants from 27 area high schools. The selections were made by committee review evaluating individual scholarship, leadership, community service, hardship, work experience and personal accomplishments. The scholarship with the highest total score in the process receives the $2500.00 award.
The $500.00 awards were made to selected schools that provided programs to advance vocational training, completion of GED requirements and other individuals seeking to advance their education in local colleges and specialty schools. The programs include: Adult Education NEISD; Family Support Services (Single Parenting Program) NEISD; Academy of Creative Education NEISD; Tourism, Hospitality and Culinary Arts St. Philips College and the Healy-Murphy Center. Additional awards of $500.00 each are provided the Adult Education Program NEISD and the Healy-Murphy Center for the purpose of assisting students in the cost of GED examinations.
