WEATHERFORD — Grace House has awarded the second annual Pure Truth Scholarship to four deserving Parker County graduates – Courtney Cox, graduate of Weatherford High School; Amy Garcia, graduate of Peaster High School; Dylan Burton, graduate of Millsap High School; and Mitchell Coker, graduate of Millsap High School. Twenty-two Parker County seniors applied for the character-based scholarship, which focuses on the students’ active role in being a change agent for their peers.
Funded by generous donations, the scholarship was created to encourage students in their pursuit of making a difference in their sphere of influence. Because of an increase in donor participation, Pure Truth was able to award four scholarships, an increase from last year’s one scholarship recipient.
The scholarship is an extension of the Pure Truth program, geared at teaching students how to live balanced and healthy lives, both physically and emotionally.
All four scholarship recipients exemplify students wishing to make a positive difference in their community. In the fall, Cox will be attending Texas Tech; Garcia, Tarleton; Burton, Texas A&M, and Coker, Texas State University.
Any Parker County school district interested in having the Pure Truth program in their middle and/or high school classrooms, contact Jayme Wood, with Grace House: firstname.lastname@example.org.
