Scholarships Handed Out

April was a busy month for the Katy Area Retired Educators, with a trip to Austin and the handing out of scholarships to Katy ISD seniors. On April 10, KARE held its monthly meeting and presented scholarships to graduating Katy ISD Seniors, who are entering college in the fall as education majors and are planning to become public school teachers. Many of them have hopes of returning to Katy ISD to teach. The keynote speaker was Kourtney Waggoner, KARE’s first scholarship recipient. Only one scholarship was given the first year they were given out, and this year the group was able to give eight scholarships with each recipient receiving $1,200 due to the efforts of KARE.
