Three high school seniors were selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship each from the Lagarto Community Club (LCC) on Thursday, May 11.

Fei Ye from Orange Grove High School, Landry Brand from George West High School and Annalyssa Gonzales from Mathis High School.

The three girls were chosen out of 34 applicants.

Ye will be attending the University of Houston to major in aerospace engineering and hopes to work with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Brand will attend Coastal Bend College to major as a Dental Hygienist.

Gonzales expects to graduate from Texas A&M University Kingsville in three years with a double major in finance and management.

LCC ladies raised the scholarship money through various activities such as the Fall Festival, a rummage sale and through the proceeds of Lagarto Closet.
