Salute to scholarship reception and ceremony

Sixty-two stellar seniors were honored at a reception and ceremony Thursday evening at Emmett J. Conrad High School. They are the 2011 Superintendent's Scholarship Recipients, representing thirty-one Dallas ISD high schools.

District 6 parents and supporters saluted:

Jasmin N. Rivers * Alexandria Emerson -- David W. Carter High School
Andrea Acosta  *  Alex D. Watson - Justin F. Kimball High School

As students were presented and scholarships announced, we listened to their awesome bios of academic performance and service.  Hearing their college and career aspirations made beaming parents, teachers, principals and supporters proud and confident about the future to be held in these students' hands.

In addition to scholarships, students received a plaque and frequent applause to commemorate the occasion.

Deyontrius M. Stevenson, freshman at the University of Houston and a 2010 Superintendent's Scholarship
recipient from South Oak Cliff High School, returned to give her salute to scholarship.

We were delighted to greet and congratulate each one of the scholarship recipients, including parents and teachers who stood for students who could not attend.

Thanks to benevolent sponsors for providing this scholarship opportunity for Dallas ISD students.

Conrad High School culinary arts students and teachers catered the Chargers Cafe reception.

The 2011 Superintendent's Scholarship Selection Committee and Dallas ISD staff planned and implemented this evening of celebration.

Congratulations, to all 2011 Superintendent's Scholarship recipients!
