Stockdale student earns $2500 GVEC Scholarship
GONZALES -- Taylor Deason of Stockdale High School recently received a $2,500 scholarship from local electric provider, the Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative Inc. (GVEC). This year, GVEC has awarded $37,500 in scholarships to graduating seniors giving them the opportunity to further their education.
More than 200 applications were received from deserving seniors all throughout GVEC’s service area. Deason was among 15 recipients who were selected for their outstanding academics, extracurricular involvement, community service, and the desire to further their education after high school.
“These students have worked extremely hard to get where they are today,” said GVEC General Manager and CEO Darren Schauer. “Balancing the demands of school with community service, part-time jobs, and other extracurricular activities they’re involved in is admirable. We are proud to reward these outstanding individuals for their dedication and commitment to academics and their communities.”
GVEC honored all of the 2013 GVEC Scholarship winners, their families, and their school administrators at a luncheon held in the First Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall in Gonzales.
The GVEC Scholarship Program is open to all high school seniors whose residence is served by GVEC. Applications and requirements for the 2014 GVEC Scholarship will be available in the fall of 2013.
