We recently received the news and our FIRST CRC Scholarship Recipient is…. THOMAS WATSON!
Thomas recently graduated from Cy-Creek. In 2015 he was a lead scorer in several cross country meets, competing in the 1 and 2 mile races and placing in All District last year! He has a TON of leadership experience from high school including NHS and the Young Republicans. He listed Cross Country and Track as some of his most influential experiences and referenced the impact his coach had on him in his essay. He will be attending the University of Texas in Austin starting this year.
He will be given his award next Tuesday evening at 7pm, and we’ll make sure to get some pictures for the group!
For those of you who are new – last year we launched funding for a scholarship for graduating Cy-Fair seniors actively involved in cross country and preparing to go off to college!
It is a $2000 scholarship administered by the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation and is given out annually and funded in perpetuity. The scholarship is awarded based on need, academic performance and an essay.
The Foundation reached out to us to say they were extremely happy to find we had 57 applicants in our first year which is VERY high for a first year offering!
