Schertz Carr Signing Day

April 02, 2014

Emily Hecox, a senior at Byron P. Steele High School, has been awarded a Distinguished Carr Scholarship to attend Angelo State University in San Angelo this fall.  The Distinguished Carr Scholarship is ASU’s most prestigious scholarship for academic achievement.

To recognize Hecox for her achievements, ASU will conduct a Carr Signing Day event at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 8, at Steele High School.  Five additional Steele seniors will also be recognized for receiving other levels of Carr Scholarships to attend ASU.

Carr Scholarships are renewable for four years and range in value from $1,000 to $15,000 per year.  Scholarship awards are based on high school grade point average and standardized test scores on the ACT or SAT college entrance exams.  The Distinguished Carr Scholarship is limited to six incoming students per year and provides each one with $15,000 annually.  To be selected for the top award, students must score at least 32 on the ACT or 1400 on the SAT, maintain a high school cumulative GPA of at least 3.5, and interview with ASU administrators.

Other Carr Distinguished Scholarship recipients are Isaac Hanemann of the Science Academy of South Texas in McAllen; Anna Porter of Stanton High School in Stanton; Gabriella Wright of Central High School in San Angelo; Stephen Medrano of Grape Creek High School in San Angelo; and Kayli Hall, a home school student from Bridgeport.

Carr Scholarships are funded by a $100 million endowment, one of the largest in the nation at a regional university.  Robert G. Carr and his wife, Nona K. Carr, who bequeathed their interests in oil, gas and other minerals from producing properties in West Texas, made the Carr Foundation possible.
