WFISD Students Receive Nearly $2 Million in Scholarships and Grants

More than 50 WFISD High School students are recognized for their academic achievements.


More than 50 WFISD High School students are recognized for their academic achievements.

The annual Academic Success Signing Day was held this morning at the WFISD Education Center on Broad Street.

The program helps students with the entire college application process and counselors assist students in deciding which college best suits their needs and plans for the future.

The students honored accepted nearly two million dollars in scholarships and grants that will go towards their higher education.

Choice of schools ranged from Brown University in Providence Rhode to some sticking to their roots and attending Midwestern State University.

One student attending Boston College says the *Options Through Education Program* gave him a big help.

"I was very fortunate to get into a program like that and they gave me about 50,000 a year," said Boston College bound high school senior Jared Collier.

Senior Maria Acosta who will be attended Midwestern State University in the fall says, "Before I started high school I had no idea what I was going to do with my life, now I have never been more certain and its great".

At the end of the ceremony all 52 students signed on the dotted line for their college.
