CITGO’s prestigious Distinguished Scholar Program was created to assist students who are planning to continue their education at a two-year or four-year college. Forty students from Alief ISD, Houston ISD, and Spring Branch ISD were named Distinguished Scholars for the 2021-22 school year. These scholars were rewarded for not only their academic success, but their excellence in one of the following categories: Beating the Odds, Career & Technical Education, Communications, Performing & Fine Arts, S.T.E.M., Service & Leadership, Spirit, or Student Athletics.
For February, ABC13 Houston highlighted Edison Arts Foundation social media assistant Chianne Rice, who is currently a senior at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. She is involved in the Black Student Union Club and she has won many accolades for her work in dance.
