Texas Tech's Financial Aid and Scholarship Office announces the names of students receiving Terry Scholarships, including four from the university's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The number increases the total number of scholars in the program to 257 with projected contributions to students at Texas Tech reaching nearly $13 million since 2011.
Recipients of the scholarships from CASNR are:
- Mahlon Barnett from Lometa
- Chase Gibson from Haskell
- Jacie Henefey from D'Hanis
- Steeley Smith from Mason
- Trevor Sullivent from Buda (Hays High School)
In total, the 2017 freshman Terry Scholar class will be awarded a projected $1.6 million. The actual amount of the award will vary for each scholar depending on other aid and scholarships. More than 500 applications were received by Texas Tech for the 15 scholarships offered, officials said.
The Terry Foundation provides four-year scholarships for Texas residents attending Texas Tech and several other universities in the state. Terry Scholars are selected from a highly competitive applicant pool of incoming freshmen who demonstrate exceptional leadership, character, financial need and scholastic ability.
"Texas Tech provides an excellent environment to foster the growth of Terry Scholars as individuals and as leaders during their time on campus and beyond," said Yvonne Moody, Terry Foundation president and executive director. "We're proud to watch the Texas Tech Terry Scholars consistently exemplify our pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and community. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with the university to develop the future leaders of Texas."
The Terry Foundation was established in 1986 by Houstonians Howard and Nancy Terry out of a desire to help young people help themselves. The foundation's goal is to strengthen the state of Texas by identifying, developing and supporting Texas high school graduates with high leadership potential.
