The School Zone: News

 

Fourteen seniors from Spring Branch ISD received $5,000 scholarships recently through the CITGO Distinguished Scholars program. The program supports high school students planning to pursue either two- or four-year university degrees.

In all, CITGO has issued 40 scholarships to selected members of the Class of 2021 who plan to graduate from Spring Branch, Alief and Houston ISDs.

CITGO Distinguished Scholars are recognized for academics as well as excellence in several special categories, which include Beating the Odds, Career & Technical Education, Communications, Performing & Fine Arts, STEM, Service & Leadership, Spirit and Student Athletics.

Mary Skrabanek, a Memorial High School student active in both cross country and track & field, was featured in a KTRK-TV 13 produced CITGO Distinguished Scholar video segment. This video will be broadcast this month on the local TV station.
