The A&M Consolidated High School Class of 2017 has designated part of their class gift funds to help complete an endowed scholarship with the College Station ISD Education Foundation. These funds will be partnered with the AMCHS Class of 2011 & 2012 Scholarship to fully endow it at the $25,000 level.
"The AMCHS Senior Class of 2017 contributed to an Education Foundation scholarship because we wanted our senior gift to focus on the pursuit of higher education for all individuals,” said 2017 Senior Class President Emily Garrett. “As a class, we wanted to make a lasting impact on our school that goes beyond a physical contribution. We hope that this scholarship will help advance the next generation of Consol students to their fullest potential."
“This senior class is really leaving a legacy,” said Teresa Benden, Education Foundation Executive Director. “Rather than just purchasing something physical for the school, they have chosen to make an impact long after they will walk the halls of A&M Consolidated High School. We are so grateful for their insight and for entrusting us to carry on their legacy.”
This May, the Education Foundation will be awarding 49 scholarships totaling $54,750 to seniors graduating from A&M Consolidated and College Station High Schools. Eleven of these scholarships are endowed.Established in 1999, the Education Foundation helps our community partner with our school district to provide support for innovative teaching grants, student scholarships and other special programs.
