Seven senior students attending four high schools from Los Fresnos to Santa Maria have become beneficiaries of the 2018 Los Fresnos Rodeo Committee.

Each graduating student received a $1,000 scholarship during the Tuesday, May 1 meeting of the Rodeo Committee and are planning to use the money to further their education.

The students and the high schools are:

Aubree K. Ramos and Madison Taylor Wilson – Los Fresnos.

Alyzza Nicole Garcia – Santa Maria.

Rebecca Marie Johnson and Ty Garrett Rhyner – Rio Hondo.

Hunter G. Lamon and Margaret Elise Adair – Harlingen South.

Noel Lopez, chairman of the scholarship committee, said they are glad to award the money.

“It’s all about helping out,” he said. “We used to give one scholarship but expanded the program adding six more.”

One scholarship of $1,000 was the norm up to three years ago.

The students showed up on Tuesday, most of them accompanied by their parents, and left with big smiles.

Committee members said they achieved one of their goals to help for a good cause.
