A one-time scholarship in the amount of $1000 will be awarded to a student who has been accepted into a college, university, community college, trade or technical school or has signed a contract to enlist in the US military the same year of graduation. One $1000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior from Northview HS in Covina, CA. A second $1000 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior from either Boerne HS or Champion HS in Boerne, Texas. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
