O’Connor grads earn $20,000 scholarships

June 27, 2016

Eight recent O’Connor High School graduates each received a $20,000 scholarship at the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Scholarship Ceremony in June.

The scholarship winners are Nicole Tribo, John Wright, Austin Clay, Emily Anderson, Maggie Louton, McKayla Balero, Alyssa Hall, and Callie DeWinne​.

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 and 4-H 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 $500,000 in scholarships this spring.
