FLINT HILLS RESOURCES AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO 28 SOUTHEAST TEXAS AREA HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
Flint Hills Resources helps 28 Southeast Texas high school students advance their education this year by awarding each an Outstanding Student Scholarship. This May, $42,000 in scholarships will be distributed to 11 area high schools.
“Supporting young people to improve their lives through education is important to us. These students are leaders among their peers showing the skills to achieve their academic goals,” said John Spell, site manager for Flint Hills Resources Port Arthur. “Congratulations to these exemplary students for their academic successes.”
Scholarship recipients are nominated and selected by their schools based on their academic records, an essay on the concept of principled entrepreneurship, demonstrated leadership skills and participation in their communities. Recipients must also plan to pursue a field of study related to science, technology, engineering, mathematics or craft trades.
“This year’s honorees represent a promising group of future leaders and we are proud to support them,” said Larry Van Horn, vice president of southern pipeline operations for Flint Hills Resources. “It is exciting to see young people interested in skilled trades like welding or electrical technician. The area’s industrial growth will need a strong skilled workforce to support our future.”
Combined, Flint Hills Resources has awarded over $202,000 in scholarships to students from Southeast Texas high schools since 2015.
