UTEP Surprises Socorro ISD Students with Scholarship Awards; El Dorado Tops in City with 34 Awards

Academic officials with The University of Texas at El Paso have been visiting schools throughout the area, handing out academic scholarships, however one Socorro ISD school has had more awards than most.

Thirty-four El Dorado High School students have received UTEP academic scholarships, the most in the city and the most in the school’s history.

Nine students at Mission Early College High School and 13 at Socorro High School also will receive scholarships.

The seniors at each high school who have won scholarships will be able to begin using them for the 2017 fall semester. SISD students collectively have earned some $1.1 million in the university’s Scholars Excellence Program.

In presentations that took place earlier this week, 19 Montwood High School students and eight Eastlake High School students were surprised with UTEP academic scholarships. At Americas High School, 17 students earned scholarships, as well.

UTEP’s Scholars Excellence Program recipients are selected based on their scholastic aptitude test scores, grade point average, student ranking and leadership skills.
