EPISD Education Foundation awards $57,000 in scholarships to 58 graduating seniors 

 

The EPISD Education Foundation this spring awarded the Class of 2015 with 58 scholarships totaling $57,000. El Paso High’s Scott Spivey, who received the highest rating on his application by the Foundation reviewers, was awarded the Board of Managers Scholarship.  Students earning scholarship will be attending colleges and universities from UTEP and UT Austin to Brown University and MIT. The 58 scholarships also includes scholarships sponsored by the Burges High School Class of 1994 and the Irvin High School Class of 1962. All scholarships awards are $1,000 with the exception of the $500 scholarships from the Burges Class of 1994 and Irvin Class of 1963.  Scholarship awards are based on a combination of academic performance, extracurricular activities and financial need as reviewed by the Foundation’s scholarship committee.

 

Scholarships awarded by the EPISD Education Foundation are made possible because of generous contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations to the Foundation’s Community Campaign for Excellence, EPISD employees as part of the Employee Giving Campaign and participants in our fundraising events. El Paso Electric Company, the Community Campaign Honorary Chair for the 2014-15 school year, kicked off this year’s campaign with a $25,000 leadership gift.
