Four seniors at Nikki Rowe High School in McAllen were each awarded scholarship money as a result of completing their 2020 Census questionnaire.

It was a plan put together by two local businesswomen who are focused on getting others to make a difference in their community.

Thelma Tamez and Sarah Sagredo-Hammond first initiated the scholarship back in May. The deadline was just this past weekend.

The businesswomen hope to improve the scholarship and make it more of a regional event in the future.
