KISD: KHS Senior Awarded $5,000 Eecu Scholarship
Keller High School Senior Timothy Turnley was recently named a recipient of a $5,000 scholarship from EECU.
EECU has awarded $40,000 in college scholarships to support eight local graduating high school students for 2019. The EECU scholarship program began more than 30 years ago and honors former board member Glenn Mandeville, a life-long educator. Since that time, EECU has provided more than $500,000 in scholarship money to local students.
“EECU has a deep commitment to education,” said Lonnie Nicholson, EECU President and CEO. “Higher education can be an essential springboard to building productive lives, but unfortunately, college costs also can be a significant burden. EECU is proud to recognize and financially assist these deserving students, and we wish them tremendous success in their academic pursuits.”
At the annual EECU meeting on March 28, EECU recognized the eight 2019 scholarship recipients, with each recipient receiving $5,000. KHS’s Turnley plans to study Music Education.
The students were selected via a review process that included academics, service to community, extracurricular leadership activities, references and an essay.
