This week @ the State Fair: Scholarship Awards Banquet

Celebrating 23 years of its Youth Scholarship Program, the State Fair of Texas recognized 55 outstanding seniors from five DISD high schools in the Fair Park area. Honoring an outstanding group of recipients from Irma Lerma Rangel Young Womenโ€™s Leadership School, James Madison, Lincoln, North Dallas and Woodrow Wilson High Schools, the annual Pete Schenkel Scholarship Luncheon drew more than 300 in attendance, including local community leaders, State Fair staff and board members, DISD faculty members and families of all the students. In 2015 the Fair is also awarding Youth Livestock Scholarships to 94 students from around the state and renewing scholarships for approximately 197 past recipients who are currently attending a state college or university. In addition, approximately 52 past scholarship recipients will be graduating college in May of this year.
