Dallas ISD awards scholarships to 59 graduating seniors
Dallas ISD has awarded Superintendent’s Scholarships of $2,000 each to 59 graduating seniors.
Each year, the Superintendent’s Scholarship program awards scholarships to two graduating seniors from each Dallas ISD high school.
Funded by the annual Superintendent’s Scholarship Golf Classic, the college scholarships are given for outstanding community service, academic achievements, and good character.
During a reception held on May 3 at Southern Methodist University, the first Joe May scholarship was given to Adriana Campos, a senior at the School for the Talented and Gifted at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center. She received $1,000 plus the $2,000 given to all Superintendent’s Scholarship recipients.
May, who died in 2006, was a Dallas ISD board trustee; he represented District 8: Love Field area, Northwest Dallas, and Central Dallas.
The first scholarship named after the Rev. Amado S. Hinojosa, Superintendent of Schools Michael Hinojosa’s father, was awarded to Oluchi Igbokwe. The senior at Justin F. Kimball High School received $1,000 in addition to the $2,000 award.
