KPRC 2 and American Furniture Warehouse are surprising 20 deserving high school seniors with scholarships in 2022. All students selected for scholarships have been nominated by their high schools.
The seventeenth $2,500 scholarship winner of the year is Aiden Collier who will graduate from Willis High School in Willis Independent School District.
Collier has maintained excellent grades while competing in two sports and serving as captain of the school’s football team.
“Even while being a two sport varsity athlete earning MVP, all-district, all-county and all-state honors, it has always been my priority to maintain a level of academic excellence,” wrote Collier in his scholarship essay. “I have been driven by my perspective that my education was the most important priority.”
Collier says he’s headed to Texas A&M’s Mays Business School in the fall.
