Jennings, Derry, Herron earn Cailloux scholarships

Special to the Courier

Three Bandera County graduating seniors are among the 20 area students receiving college scholarships from the Cailloux Foundation in Kerrville this month.
Corey Jennings and John Derry from Bandera High School and Jacob Herron from Medina High School were among the receipients.
Awards are up to $14,000 per recipient annually and are for undergraduate study only. The scholarships are renewable for up to four years for a maximum multi-year award of $56,000 per student.
The 2015-2016 program will have 88 freshmen through senior level students participating as scholarship recipients enrolled in four-year public or private colleges or universities in Texas.
"Last year we increased to 20 awards in honor of the foundation's 20th anniversary and we plan to continue giving at that level for this important program," said Ben Modisett, assistant executive director for the foundation.
Jennings plans to major in civil engineering at UTSA; Derry will focus on agricultural engineering at Texas A&M; and Herron will major in electrical engineering at Texas A&M.
The applicants met or exceeded a minimum Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) score requirement of 1022, or a minimum American College Test (ACT) score of 22. They also have a minimum grade average of 85 and are in the top one-third of their class.
The scholarship application will be available for next year beginning on Nov. 2. Current news about the Scholarship Program is available at facebook.com/caillouxscholars.
