Eight Pflugerville ISD graduates won a Neal Kocurek Scholarship from the St. David’s Foundation, which were awarded to 36 Central Texas students who plan to pursue healthcare-related careers.
Pflugerville ISD recipients were:
Each recipient will receive $6,000 per year for up to four years’ undergraduate and two years’ graduate studies, to be used for tuition and other expenses at a Texas university or college. As part of the St. David’s Neal Kocurek Scholarship program, a mentor from St. David’s HealthCare is paired with each scholarship recipient, providing students with the opportunity to interact directly with healthcare professionals in their chosen career.
Funds for the scholarships are raised annually from Toast of the Town, a series of fundraising parties held each spring. Proceeds from Toast of the Town are matched by the St. David’s Foundation. Since 2005, more than $4 million in scholarships have been awarded to Central Texas students, who are attending 27 colleges and universities.
