O’Connor grads earn $20,000 FFA scholarships

June 30, 2015

Seven recent O’Connor High School graduates each received a $20,000 scholarship at the Bexar County Future Farmers of America Scholarship Ceremony in June.

The scholarship winners are Emily Blue, Jamie Carpenter, Madison DeWinne, Kayla Hughes, Victoria Maddock, Brian Muldoon, and William Stuart.

The scholarships were donated by the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, or San Antonio Livestock Exposition (S.A.L.E.) as a grant for Bexar County FFA programs. 

In all, fourteen $20,000 scholarships were made available for Bexar County FFA members by S.A.L.E.  A committee of agriculture instructors, one from each agriculture program in Bexar County, reviewed the applications and interviewed each applicant. 

O’Connor FFA seniors earned over $550,000 in scholarships this spring, surpassing totals in recent history.
