Fabens High Grads Snag Western Technical College’s 2017 Cotton Valley Scholarships

Western Technical College has announced the recipients of the 2017 Cotton Valley Scholarships.

Alan Sanchez Aguirre and Bryan Saucedo, both 2017 graduates from Fabens High School, will receive $25,000 in scholarships towards tuition, books, uniforms, laptops, and Matco tools at Western Tech.

“It is rewarding for us at Western Tech to be able to give the gift of education to well-deserving students like Alan and Bryan,” said Brad Kuykendall, Chief Executive Officer of Western Tech.

“We also applaud the efforts of Texas State Board of Education District 1 Representative, Georgina Cecilia Perez, who plays such a critical role advocating for long-term education.  We look forward to the bright futures Alan and Bryan have as they start their careers at Western Tech,” Kuykendall added.

A scholarship presentation was held earlier this month at Western Tech where the students received their awards from the Cotton Valley Scholars of the Rural Schools Education Program & Scholarship Foundation.

Both Alan and Bryan are enrolled in the Associates of Occupational Studies in Diesel Mechanics program.

  • When I saw this report I was curious about why they were going to Wisconsin for school. Western Tech in Wisconsin (https://www.westerntc.edu) is an older school with a solid reputation. What is the background of El Paso’s Western Tech? Is this a private, for profit school trying to build business on someone else’s reputation?
