RGV LEAD Scholarship Recipient Edward Padilla


Vol.2, Iss. 9 | May 2021

Congratulations to Edward Padilla of Sharyland High School on 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 high school Career & Technical Education courses, 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 Service; and Lizzy de la Garza Putegnat, Account Executive for Schneider Electric, interviewed the three finalists, and through stiff competition, Mr. Padilla was selected as the finalist.

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