2010 High School Scholarship Winners

Each year, ABTA donates a portion of their proceeds to various charitable causes, including the Educational and Professional Achievement Scholarship program, Angel Heart Children's Shelter, and member educational scholarships.  Since the inception of the high school scholarship program, ABTA has contributed more than $50,000 in educational scholarships to graduating seniors.

This year, during the June monthly meeting, four distinguished Austin-area high school seniors were recognized as recipients for the Austin Business Travel Association's 2010 Educational and Professional Achievement

Scholarship. Representing several local campuses, these seniors were chosen from nearly two dozen applicants for the $1,500 scholarships.  In additional to scholastic achievement, factors such as athletics, leadership, volunteerism, community service, work ethic, involvement in other extracurricular activities and letters of recommendation were considered.  In photo order (left to right) the four recipients were:

Madison McDaniel - Leander High School

Britt Brandon - Hyde Park Baptist High School

Brandon Moore - Crockett High School

Hailey Forde - Cedar Park High School
