Edward Padilla RGV LEAD Scholarship Recipient

Congratulations are in order for Edward Padilla of Sharyland High School for being selected as the 2021 RGV LEAD $5,000 scholarship recipient! He was selected from a field of almost 100 applicants.

Edward submitted the RGV LEAD application which required letters of recommendation, a list of Career & Technical Education courses taken, in high school, his grade point average and ranking, and a personal essay. The pre-scholarship committee reviewed all applications and narrowed the list to 12 finalists. From there, the top three applicants were selected for a personal interview. RGV LEAD board members Albert Pena, Superintendent of San Perlita ISD; Naomi Perales, Community Relations Manager for Texas Gas Ser-vice; and Lizzy de la Garza Putegnat, Account Executive for Schneider Electric interviewed the 3 finalists, and through stiff competition, Mr. Padilla was selected as the lone finalist.

RGV LEAD wishes Mr. Padilla and all of the participants the best in their future endeavors!
