When selecting each year’s scholarship recipients, CRC looks not only at the academic achievements of each applicant, but also his or her school and community involvement activities. CRC typically distributes six $1,000 scholarships each year. This year, however, CRC awarded 10 $1,000 scholarships to local students.
“We were so impressed by the exceptional applications we received from area students for this year’s scholarship awards that we wanted to recognize as many of them as possible,” said Chris Holt, CRC’s president and CEO. “Their achievements are to be commended. CRC’s management and staff wish them the best in their continuing education.”
In November 2013, students in the communities in which CRC has offices—Austin, Dunlap, and Abilene—were invited to apply for a 2014 CRC scholarship. The scholarship recipients were selected in May.
