An education is so very important and it is gratifying to see that various organizations in Seguin see the importance and give scholarships to deserving students.
Nancy L. Brown, PhD. writes that "when you think about it, after unconditional love and attention, there may be nothing more powerful a parent can give a child than education."
Not only are scholarships available for Seguin students, there are many in the community who mentor students, helping them achieve and instilling a desire for further education.
The "Smokey" Joe Williams scholarship fundraiser will give one or two Seguin students the opportunity to go college.
Last night was the tenth annual "Smokey" Joe Williams Scholarship Fundraiser. Scholarships will be given to deserving Seguin athletes through this fund and the banquet is an important fundraiser toward this purpose. The featured speaker was World Series MVP Dave Stewart.
