The Sports Alliance presented $8,000 in scholarships to 4 male and 4 female graduating student athletes from each of the local high schools: Abilene Christian, Abilene, Cooper, and Wylie high schools. These scholarships are awarded to student athletes displaying high character, integrity, sound judgment and are recognized as outstanding role models.
The scholarship recipients are:
- Carlee Riggs and Robert Daniel Austin from Abilene Christian High School
- Mackenzie Curnutt and Evan Willis from Abilene High School
- Shelby Thompson and Ryan Conyer from Cooper High School
- Christian Light and Matt McLeod from Wylie High School School
The enthusiasm this event has generated, not only locally, but at the state level has brought favorable attention to Shotwell Stadium allowing Abilene to showcase the continued updates that make Shotwell one of the most desirable stadiums in Texas.
Congratulations to the award winners and best of luck to all 2012 graduates!
