Fort Bend Friends and Neighbors Foundation awarded $2,000 scholarships to four Fort Bend County students at the Picnic in the Park luncheon held at the City Centre at Quail Valley, Missouri City. Entertainment was provided by the Sugar Land Sweet Adelines and more than 100 guests enjoyed a delicious lunch.
What makes this scholarship program unique is that it provides scholarships for students who are planning to attend college in Fort Bend County and need financial aid to help them achieve that goal. Funds for the scholarships are raised by Fort Bend Friends and Neighbors Foundation through an annual silent auction and donations.
Scholarships were presented by FBFN President Nancy Frank to Mercedes Hernandez, B F Terry High School, attending WCJC Sugar Land, Dustin Mikel attending WCJC, Arielle Schochler, Needville High School, attending WCJC Sugar Land and Katelyn Zwahr, Needville High School, attending WCJC.
