Turkeyfest awards $4,000 in scholarships for 2014-15 grads
Giving back to the community
Turkeyfest is happy to announce our scholarship winners for the 2014-15 school year!
Through ticket and beverage sales, we are able to give back thousands of dollars to the community each year along with college scholarships. This week we awarded $4,000 to Cuero High School grads as part of our mission.
-Two $500 general scholarships went to Chant Parker and Haley Wendel.
-Our $1,500 volunteer scholarship went to Mariah Rodriguez who volunteered a number of hours at the festival, our spring barbecue cookoff, as well as assisting in other activities.
-We are also able to partner with the Watson family to offer a $1,500 scholarship to a student entering the field of agriculture or attending a technical school or college. This year's Cuero Turkeyfest and Watson Family Antique Tractor Pull scholarship is awarded to Emily Haun.
Congrats to all of our winners and Cuero graduates. We hope to see you back in town for the 43rd Annual Turkeyfest this October!
