We’ve hired some of the best in our field to conduct research on those we serve to bring this educational material to you. We’ve also scoured the web for other resources that may help you in understanding the magnitude of our cause that affects thousands each year.
The themes flow from Sunday to Saturday in “Tree Of Life,” a recent exterior mural in East Waco, but the people and history contained in it stretch over the decades. Coordinating and arranging that into a unified piece of artwork took Brazos Education Foundation scholar alumni and Waco artists Vincent Thomas and Cade Kegerreis about two months with 10 Waco Independent School District ARTPrenticeship students painting much of it in from October to December.
National data shows just 24% of Texas high school seniors have filled out federal financial aid forms, a nearly 15% decline from the same time last year.
We hope you didn't miss coverage of the Foundation's "Education 4 Everyone" Golf Tournament in the October issue of Waco Today.
Congratulations to our Brazos Scholar Alicia Martinez, who was selected to receive a Waco Rotary Club scholarship. Alicia attends Baylor studying in the School of Social Work. Go to 1:07 in this video to hear Alicia's plans for her future.
