Temple Education Foundation Awards over $115,000 in Scholarships to Temple High School Graduating Seniors

On Monday, May 18, 2020 at 6:00 P.M. Temple High School hosted a virtual Awards Ceremony to announce the Class of 2020 scholarship recipients. Along with scholarships sponsored by the high school were 42 general, named, and endowed scholarships made possible through the Temple Education Foundation (TEF). TEF’s mission is “maximizing opportunities for all students in the Temple Independent School District.” Through year-long fundraising efforts such as the fall’s Distinguished Alumni event and the TISD Staff Giving Campaign, TEF was able to award over $115,000 in scholarships to Temple High School’s Class of 2020.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, Temple High’s Award Ceremony was a virtual ceremony held on YouTube. Although it is unfortunate that the Class of 2020’s accomplishments could not be celebrated in person, in a way it was a blessing to be able to share the scholarship recipients with a wider audience through technology.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of Temple Education Foundation donors and their commitment to assisting youth achieve their dreams for higher education. Scholarship recipients are listed below.
