Jared Matthew Pieniazek, a graduating senior from East Central High School in San Antonio, has been awarded a four-year, $5,000 Youth Livestock Show Scholarship sponsored by the State Fair of Texas. The $1,250-a-year scholarship is renewable by maintaining a 3.0 grade-point average.
Jared participated in the State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Shows from 2005-10 in the Youth Market Barrow Shows. In high school, he has been an active member of FFA, 4-H, Beta Club, National Honor Society, choir, and the Student Council. He has held numerous offices in the clubs and received many awards and honors during his high school career and has been very active in community service.
Jared plans to attend Texas A&M University in College Station and major in food science and technology. He is the son of Ray and Gail Pieniazek of Adkins.
Since 1992, the State Fair of Texas Scholarship Program has awarded scholarships to academically talented students who graduate from high schools in the Dallas State Fair Park area. In 1993, the State Fair of Texas Scholarship Program expanded its youth support by awarding scholarships to academically talented students who participated in State Fair of Texas Youth Livestock Shows. The 2011 Youth Livestock Show will be held this fall during the 125th State Fair of Texas, Sept. 30 to Oct. 23, at Fair Park in Dallas.
