2013 Jones Scholars

Twelve graduating seniors in Spring Branch ISD have been named 2013 Houston Endowment Jones Scholars and are now eligible to receive up to $16,000 in scholarship funds toward a four-year university or college bachelor’s degree.

Jones Scholars are nominated by participating high schools. A Rotary Club of Houston committee made the final selection based on academic achievement, economic need, leadership skills, community service and character.

The Houston Endowment is a philanthropic foundation founded in 1937 by Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones to improve the lives of Houstonians through donations to charities and educational institutions. Since it was established in 1958, the Houston Endowment has given more than $97 million to help send more than 11,000 students to college.

SBISD seniors named as Houston Endowment Jones Scholars this year:
  • Memorial High – Ryan P. Neal, Aditya Srinivasan, Kaijia Tian
  • Northbrook High – Fernando Bello, Lucia A. Meras-Torres
  • Spring Woods High – Sandy A. Aguilar, Rena Dang, Aileen A. Lail
  • Stratford High – Anna C. Chong, Fernando Trujano, Tian Yao
  • Westchester Academy for International Studies – Angela N. Dodd
