State Farm Insurance is awarding $1,000 to Dillon Stull of McKinney Boyd High School for being named as one of three State Farm Outstanding Texas Scholars and Winner of a $6,000 Award. This award signifies him as one of the top 4 students in the pool of over 1,500 nominees submitted for the 2011-2012 Program.
State Farm Insurance’s Texas Scholar Award (TSA) Program is commemorating more than 10 years of honoring excellence in secondary education in Texas. State Farm is celebrating this commitment with several new enhancements to the scholarship program.
The Texas Scholar Award Program has been expanded to include all University Interscholastic League (UIL) sanctioned activities and is now a two-tiered program; 50 Texas Scholars were selected, each receiving a $1,000 scholarship. All recipients were then invited to compete for an opportunity to receive one of the four larger scholarships – three awards of $5,000 and one award in the amount of $10,000. These awards were announced on May 1, 2012. In all, State Farm will award a total of $75,000 in scholarships to high school seniors across the State.
The ceremony is taking place at the McKinney Boyd High School Senior Award Night Ceremony on Monday, May 21. On behalf of the Texas Agents of State Farm Agent Dennis C Baker, of McKinney, will make the presentation to Dillon in the presence of his classmates and parents as well as ISD and High School administrators and faculty/staff.
Dillon was recently named a Presidential Scholar.
