Catholic Life announces All American Scholars
Patrick Beaver and Clayton Labus of Karnes City, Brittany Covert of St. Hedwig, Haley Labus and Barrett Raabe of Floresville, and Brady Zunker of Falls City have been selected to receive the 2011 All American Scholar Award sponsored by Catholic Life Insurance. This award honors high school seniors who have gone above and beyond in their civic duties and truly worked to make a difference in their community.
Each year, Catholic Life awards 35 scholarships worth $1,000 each to graduating high school seniors who have gone above and beyond in their civic duties and made a difference in their communities.
The All American Scholar Award was designed to offset tuition costs for young Catholic Life members attending an accredited college or university in the fall semester following their senior year of high school. This award recognizes those special individuals who have dedicated their valuable time and efforts to helping others while remaining devoted to their academic studies, and Catholic Life Insurance strives to reward this high degree of selfless commitment.
