Makayla Martin, RGV LEAD 2024 Scholarship Recipient

What better way to end your senior year than to be notified that you are the RGV LEAD $5,000 scholarship recipient? That’s precisely what happened to Sharyland ISD Pioneer High School senior Makayla Martin. Her family, counselor, and friends surrounded her as Dr. Marcos Silva, RGV LEAD Executive Director, approached Makayla on the Sharyland campus to present the Scholarship.

Rene Huddelston, Pioneer Career & Technical Education Counselor, said this about Makayla:

Makayla has been volunteering for the past 15 years along with her family by shopping for the Salvation Army Angel Tree to help provide financially struggling families with Christmas presents. At Pioneer High School, she volunteered to help continue the program. Last year, we shopped for over 450 angels. Makayla would shop, help organize the purchases, and mentor other students with the tasks. I often counted on Makayla to manage the front lines and help facilitate the purchases. Makayla always demonstrates a servant’s heart.
