TABC Awards Four Scholarship Grants
This grant is established to help TABC meet one of our established
goals; that is, involving our youth in the sport of bass fishing, and at
the same time encouraging our youth to continue their education.
TABC established two $500 scholarship grants to be awarded each year to graduating high school seniors and to those who are already attending junior college, college, advanced degree programs and trade schools. Applicants must meet certain requirements as spelled out in the TABC By-Laws. Because there were no applications received last year, the TABC Board voted to roll those two grants into this year, resulting in four possible awards.
Besides providing the basic applicant information, each applicant had to provide a two page essay describing their most memorable sporting event. On a separate page, applicants had to submit a description of volunteer activities, committees, leadership positions, awards, honors, job history, and community involvement.
2009 Scholarships Awarded
We received three outstanding applications and each were unique in their own way.
Due to funds dedicated to one of our special projects not being exhausted, the Board
of Directors voted to put the extra funds to good use. Therefore we awarded a third
scholarship this year.
The William "Doc" Shelton Scholarship will be awarded to Demi Rae Moore. Her father
Everett Moore is from the Llano Bass Club.
The Gerald Partin Scholarship will be awarded to Tyler Tyree.
The third scholarship which will be named the "Let's Go Fishing Event 2009" will be
awarded to Andrew Tyree. Tyler and James father, Jim Tyree is from Mr. & Mrs. Bass Club.
All three of these amazing award winners and their families are invited to our State
Championship Dinner on September 26, 2009 in Lufkin, Texas.
