The Pasadena ISD Police Officers Association presented seven $1,000 scholarship awards to district high school graduates at the July board meeting Tuesday evening. The scholarship program is made possible through proceeds from the organization’s 2015 Car Show. The association expressed gratitude to all who supported the initiative including this year’s top sponsor, Anthony Loya, general sales manager of A.C. Collins Ford Dealership.  

Now in its second year, the Car Show attracts droves of district families, board members, area businesses and organizations, and car enthusiasts. Attendees enjoy live entertainment, food and a vast array of hot rods, custom vehicles and classic cars. The event has proven to be successful, raising an increase of $3,000 this year.

“We enjoy giving back to students in the community,” Pasadena ISD Police Captain David Garza said. “This event helps us to provide the resources students need to be successful and reach their goals.”

Scholarship recipients were required to submit applications to the Police Association. A panel of judges reviewed each application and made selections based on academic achievements and disciplinary standing.

The 2015 Pasadena ISD Police Officers Association scholarship recipients are: Ana Ortiz, Dobie; Quentin Sessor, Dobie; Sadie Burt, Memorial; Glenda Rivera, Dobie; Dakota Fontenot, South Houston; Juan Pedraza, Dobie; and Dominique Nsibu, Memorial.
