Texas Scholars picnic for prizes

CROSBY — A perfect Spring day and all the breeze one could ask for made last Thursday on the Crosby Fair & Rodeo Fairgrounds an ideal picnic setting.

Local sentiment in favor of higher standards for education by the business sector found theater in the Texas Scholars Luncheon hosted by the Crosby/Huffman Chamber of Commerce.

Students from Crosby High and Huffman’s Hargrave High School that took the curriculum required to earn the Texas Scholars designation and achieved at least a C grade point average were treated to some barbecue chip sandwiches, snacks, sodas and a bevy of prizes lavished by local businesses on May 12.

Steve Myers, Superintendent of Huffman ISD, congratulated students on their accomplishments. Dr. Don Hendrix orated on the realities of graduation being a beginning, the probabilities of distraction from purpose in junior college and unique challenges for those entering the employment market now or in the near future.
