LEF awards student scholarships and teacher grants

More than $113,000 was awarded in scholarships to Lewisville ISD graduating seniors at the 22nd Annual Lewisville ISD Education Foundation Awards Ceremony and Reception on May 7.

Three teachers– Nichelle DeVaughn, Chrystal Gerrard Hervey and Texas Stevens IV– also received a total of $1,500 in fellowships to continue their education.

The Foundation’s Program Allocation Scholarship Committee read 469 scholarship applications received from all five Lewisville ISD high schools.  The committee spent countless hours carefully reading the applications in order to match them with the many different scholarship criteria established by donors.

Since the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation (LEF) began in 1990, more than $2.3 million has been awarded to students in the 13 communities served by Lewisville ISD.  In addition, LEF has awarded $107,716 in classroom and campus grants and $6,500 for Awards of Excellence during the 2012-2013 school year.
