Students Earn Gifted & Talented Summer Scholarships

Four Spring Branch ISD students identified as Gifted and Talented (GT) recently won Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) Summer Scholarships to help fund academic camps they will attend throughout the summer.

Wilchester Elementary School’s John Paul Le received the Carole Vermillion Scholar scholarship, issued to the highest scoring elementary applicant. Le reportedly will use the $500 award to attend a Western Academy Science Trebuchet Camp.

The Houston-based Western Academy’s Trebuchet Camp provides hands-on activities to study energy conversion, levers, trajectories, ratios, rotational motion, inertia, forces and other science topics.

The TAGT Summer Scholarships are based solely on merit and are open to GT identified students who are enrolled in kindergarten through high school. In all, 37 students were awarded TAGT scholarships this year, each worth up to $400 with the exception of highest scoring applicants.

Additional Spring Branch ISD TAGT Scholarship Winners:

Kendrick Foster - Memorial Middle School, Duke TIP Summer Studies
Jordan Kennedy - Pine Shadows Elementary, The Health Museum’s Summer Program

Jesus Silva - Cedar Brook Elementary, Engineering Camp
