Congratulations to Barrett Nelson, Shannon Kelley, and Nathan Peace!
seniors at Trinity High School


Received Harwood JH PTA Scholarships

The Harwood PTA has announced the recipients of the 2008 Megan Newstrom and Jay Hendrickson Memorial Scholarships. Trinity High School seniors Barrett Nelson and Shannon Kelley are the recipients of the Jay Hendrickson Memorial Scholarship. Because the Class of 2008 would have been Jay’s graduating class, two scholarships are being sponsored this year in his honor. Nathan Peace, also a senior at Trinity High School, is the recipient of the Megan Newstrom Memorial Scholarship. These $500 scholarships honor the memory of two young students who lost their battle with cancer just as they were entering 7th grade at Harwood Junior High.

Graduating HEB ISD seniors who attended Harwood Junior High are eligible to apply. A recipient is one who demonstrates positive character traits and good citizenship through school, work, community, athletic, religious, and other related activities, while maintaining a high level academic standard, and whose life and future goals adhere to the spirit of the person for whom the scholarship memorializes.

“We are extremely proud of this year’s recipients of the Jay Hendrickson and Megan Newstrom Memorial Scholarships and feel all three exemplify the spirit of these two awards”, said Sandy Mezanazi, Harwood PTA President.
