of

The Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo awarded $143,000 in scholarships to 48 Central Texas students for the 2017-18 academic year. This continues the Fair & Rodeo’s tradition and mission of giving back through youth scholarships.

On May 16, 2018, students and their families attended the organization’s Scholar Recognition Banquet, underwritten by Bailey Insurance & Risk Management, Inc. Students receiving scholarships represented the following schools: Axtell, Blooming Grove, Bremond, China Spring, C.H. Yoe, Connally, Crawford, Groesbeck, Holland, Lorena, Mart, MCC, McGregor, Midway, Penelope, Robinson, Rogers, Rosebud-Lott, Salado, TSTC, Waco and West.

The Top Scholar of the evening was Phoebe Park from Midway High School who received a scholarship in the amount of $15,000. The Reserve Top Scholar was Faith Butler from Robinson High School and she received a $10,000 scholarship.

“This is one of my favorite nights of the year,” commented CEO and President Wes Allison. “We are pleased to award these deserving students with scholarships as this is a core part of our mission here at the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo.”

Through the TSTC match scholarship program, 42-year-old Maximino Carrillo and military veteran Victor Castana were awarded scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each along with several other TSTC students.

“I will use this scholarship to its fullest,” stated Maximino Carrillo. “I want to be an example to my kids and others who think it’s too late to follow their dreams.”

These scholarships are part of the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo’s annual commitment of providing scholarships to Central Texas students which is made possible thanks to our sponsors and volunteers. Each year our volunteer committees spend countless hours raising money through various fundraisers to contribute to this fund. Since its beginning, the Heart O’ Texas Fair & Rodeo has committed more than $3 million to the youth of Central Texas.
