The Big Spring Independent School District’s Board of Trustees held a regular session on Thursday, July 9, 2020. Several items were discussed including the recipients of the Mexican American School Board Association Scholarship and the Gexa Energy Scholarship.
MASBA is a voluntary, non-profit, statewide education association that has served local Texas school boards since 1970. MASBA is focused on closing gaps in our Texas public schools, particularly for the Latino students who comprise the majority in our Texas public schools. This year’s recipients of the MASBA Scholarship are Abel Magana, also known as Abel Clark, and Kayleigh Rodriguez. Clark received $125 and Rodriguez received $250.
The recipient of the Gexa Energy Scholarship was Jayden Torres in the amount of $750.00.
