Officials at Texas Tech's Financial Aid and Scholarship Office have announced the names of students receiving prestigious Terry Scholarships, including three from the university's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
Recipients of the scholarships from CASNR this year are:
• Annie Braack, a natural resources management major from Pilot Point, Texas
• Lindsay Dube, an agricultural communications major from Thorndale, Texas
• Delbert Reynolds, an agricultural communications major from Lufkin, Texas
The Houston-based Terry Foundation scholarship program provides four-year scholarships for Texas residents attending Texas Tech and a dozen 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.
Program officials note that Terry Scholars are selected from a competitive applicant pool of incoming freshmen and non-traditional, transfer students from Texas community colleges or universities who are working toward their first bachelor's degree. Those selected demonstrate exceptional leadership, character, financial need and scholastic ability.
The Terry Foundation was established in 1986 by Houstonians Howard and Nancy Terry from 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 and providing them with scholarships to attend participating universities.
