Ten Students Receive Bar Association Scholarships

Ten Angelina County students are now more financially prepared for their college education.

Tuesday, the Angelina Bar Association presented the high school seniors with $1,000 scholarships.

The group chose the students based on their applications and academic performance. Several of the students have ties to the legal community, but that is not a requirement for the award.

The Angelina Bar Association also presented two scholarships established in honor of the late... Reich Chandler and Henry Rogers.

Tuesday's ceremony was the organization's 17th annual scholarship reception.
