Three area students have received scholarship money from the Beyer Family Texas Tech University Scholarship for 2021. The primary scholarship for $5,000 has been awarded to Dallin Penrod of Beach City. The Barber’s Hill High School graduate plans to attend Texas Tech this fall and will major in mechanical engineering. He will graduate in the top 10% of his class on May 28 and has distinguished himself with leadership in band, theater arts and athletics (golf and tennis).
Also, two other Senior students will receive scholarship payments of $500 each in honor of their achievements and plans at Texas Tech in Lubbock. Julia Adams is a top 10 graduate from Liberty High School. Her scholarship is based on her high academic achievement and involvement in law enforcement, Liberty Prancers, Leo Club and the Liberty High FFA with an interest in becoming a Veterinarian and then going to the new Texas Tech Veterinary School. Cade Hoehner will also receive a $500 scholarship for use at Texas Tech University. He is graduating from Crosby High school with leadership skills in Crosby FFA and 4H. He is very enthusiastic to become a Red Raider. He plans to attend Texas Tech and wants to study mechanical engineering, already having received a provisional patent on a trailer design as a Sophomore student. He eventually wants to apply to the Texas Tech Law School, also in Lubbock and obtain his Law degree and become a corporate litigator.
Although it is less than 100 years old, Texas Tech University offers over 150 Bachelor’s degrees, over 100 Masters degrees and over 50 Doctorate programs. It is only one of two Texas Universities to offer a Law School, Medical School (including Pharmacy), as well as undergraduate and graduate schools at one campus in Lubbock. It also offers international study. Texas Tech is proud to announce completing a new Dental School and a Veterinary School in El Paso and Amarillo, respectively.
These three High School Graduates will be able to choose from over 450 clubs and organizations to join to enhance their college experience on the Tech campus, along with over 40,000 other students from across the nation. These future Red Raiders will be able to fulfill their aspirations as they experience the University and the Texas Tech slogan of “FROM HERE, IT’S POSSIBLE”.
