Financial assistance for pacesetters in need. Beginning in 2016, a four-year scholarship program was initiated to provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors who demonstrated the qualifications and desire for higher education, showed a dedication to helping others, and are in need of such assistance. 

This year we are pleased to announce our 2023 scholarship recipients, Nitya Kodali from Langham Creek High School and Wyatt Lewis from Cy-Fair High School. Nitya will be attending Vanderbilt University this fall to study Public Health and Neuroscience, and Wyatt will be attending Texas A&M to study Construction Science. Congratulations to these two outstanding individuals for their hard work and dedication!
