This year, PP&T sought to honor our Texas Teachers, Law Enforcement and First Responders by awarding three winners with a $750 stipend scholarship.
We had many incredible candidates submit applications and the selection committee faced a very tough decision. We appreciate the many students who took the time to apply for the scholarships, and we pray that this year is smooth and studies go well for all. To those not selected, please apply again next year.
