The Arlington Foundation for Excellence in Education is set to award more than $22,000 in scholarships to high school students looking to further their education.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 14, so high school seniors, don’t delay.
Scholarships such as the Dr. Barbara Odom-Wesley Spirit of Achievement Scholarship and the Elzie Odom Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship will award students $3,000 each for their demonstrated leadership, community service and involvement in extracurricular activities.
Carmille Turner, chair of the academic qualifying committee at the Arlington Foundation for Excellence in Education, feels honored to support deserving students throughout Arlington.
“It is an honor for the foundation to award students throughout Arlington with scholarship opportunities to further their education,” said Turner. “We believe every student should have an opportunity to follow their dreams and strive towards excellence.”
One of last year’s winners, Brooklyn Richard from Martin High School, received the Madelyn Opal McDowell Butler Servant Leader Scholarship for $1,000. She is now attending the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor to become a pediatric nurse.
This year’s winners will be announced at the Arlington ISD’s annual Family Expo and Resource Fair. Don’t forget the deadline to apply is Feb. 14, so students, now is the time to apply right here.
