Six district student athletic trainers were recently awarded Sports Medicine scholarships from Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center.

Northbrook High School’s Amanda Arredondo and Yenifer Rivas, Spring Woods High’s April Hernandez and David Romay, and Stratford High’s Alexis Romero and Sindi Romero each received scholarships ranging from $400 to $1,000 in recognition of the distinguished service they provided to Spring Branch ISD athletic programs during their high school careers.
