Two Thomas Jefferson High School are headed to college this fall with $20,000 Deloitte and the Northern Texas PGA Fairway to Success scholarships.
Renee Moreno and Marco Ramirez, respectively ranked third and seventh in their class, will head to rival schools in the fall. Moreno to Texas A&M to study architecture and Ramirez to the University of Texas to pursue a business degree.
The soon-to-be grads were two of six Dallas ISD students to receive the scholarships this year at a breakfast held on May 2 at Lakewood Country Club.
Established in 2007, the Fairway to Success program offers after-school golf lessons to students from TJ, W.W. Samuell, and Lincoln. The scholarship recipients all participated in the program and were chosen based on academic performance, extracurricular activities, community involvement, and financial need, according to a press release.
