The Nolan County Board of Realtors was very excited at the number of applicants who applied for their $500 college scholarship. This scholarship was made available to all of the graduating high school seniors in Nolan County, planning to further their education. "The NCBR Scholarship Committee was also very impressed with the number of applicants that were qualified to receive this award. It was a very difficult job for the selection committee."
The recipients were chosen from over 40 applicants. The scholarship committee reviewed the anonymously written essays to keep the selection as fair as possible.
This year the scholarship funds have allowed the Nolan County Board of Realtors to award four $500 scholarships to the following graduating Nolan County high school seniors of 2013.
This year, the NCBR scholarships were awarded to:
• Isaiah Hernandez from Sweetwater High School;
• Whitnee Murff from Sweetwater High School;
• Torrey Willman from Roscoe Collegiate High School; and
• Blake Young from Sweetwater High School.
"Congratulations to all of the graduating high school seniors of 2013 in Nolan County. You have all done an outstanding job and have finally come to the end of your public school education. However, it is just the beginning of a whole new era of your life. Good luck to you as you continue your journey through life," said members of the scholarship committee. “And a special congratulations to the recipients of this year’s NCBR scholarships."
Members of the NCBR encouraged students to come back home to Nolan County after graduation, visit a local real estate office "and let an agent of the Nolan County Board of Realtors help you to find your dream home."
