WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - The Wichita Falls Housing Authority hosted its 3rd annual Scholarship Essay Writing Workshop on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The event is held for high school seniors and college students that need help when writing essays for scholarship money. Volunteers helped walked the students through the process to complete the scholarship essays and applications.
Officials said there are many organizations in Wichita Falls alone that have money to give they need students to apply.
“MSU is giving away a $1K scholarship. Vernon College gave away two $1K scholarships. And Alpha Kappa Alpha gave two $750 scholarships,” ROSS Program Coordinator Paris Ward said.
Door prizes were raffled off to get students ready for college including a mini fridge, microwave, HP Chromebook, bedding, and laundry supplies. Organizers hope to continue to host the annual event next year.
