RGV LEAD ANNOUNCES RECIPIENT OF THE 2019 RGV LEAD SCHOLARSHIP
RGV LEAD is pleased to announce that Brianna Lysette Salinas, Edinburg High School, Edinburg CISD, has been named recipient of the $5,000 RGV LEAD Scholarship for 2018-2019.
Graduating as an RGV LEAD Scholar was required, and Salinas will have met that requirement when she graduates from Edinburg High School, Edinburg CISD, later this spring.
While in high school, Brianna has taken rigorous courses and maintained a 4.0 GPA. She has been involved in the National Honor Society, the National English Honor Society, the National Technical Honor Society (Parliamentarian), Student Council (Senior Class Vice President), Swim team (Captain), Business Professionals of America (Historian), Health Occupations Students of America, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Choir, and Theater. Brianna also has worked as a lifeguard for the City of Edinburg. Her supervisor with the City described her as excellent in work ethic, customer service, and leadership skills.
Brianna’s goal is to become a Physician’s Assistant, giving back to her community as much as possible in the process. She plans to enroll at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley to pursue a Master’s degree in Health Science.
As part of the process, scholarship finalists were interviewed by this team of RGV LEAD Board members: Robert Leftwich (Keller-Williams, Associate Board); Jonathan Medina (Director, JMedina Speaks); and Gabriel Puente (RGVision Publications, Executive Board), interviewed the finalists. The decision was difficult because the finalists were excellent! The committee and the RGV LEAD Board are pleased to award the scholarship to Brianna Salinas!
