ASU to Host Carr Signing Days
April 02, 2014
Carr Scholarships are renewable for four years and range in value from $1,000 to $15,000 per year. Scholarship awards are based on high school grade point average and standardized test scores on the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. Carr Signing Days will feature students signing all levels of Carr Scholarships to ASU, similar to signing events for athletic scholarships.
Local Carr Signing Days will be held at Central, Lake View and Grape Creek high schools. Gabriella Wright of Central High School and Stephen Medrano of Grape Creek High School will sign Carr Distinguished Scholarships during their schools’ respective signing days. The Carr Distinguished Scholarship is ASU’s highest gift-aid award, providing $15,000 per year, and is awarded to only six incoming students annually. Local signing days already scheduled are:
- Central High School: 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, Room 100, ASU Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive
- Lake View High School: 12:15-12:45 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, Lake View Library
- Grape Creek High School: 10:15-10:45 a.m. Wednesday, April 16, Grape Creek Cafeteria/Auditorium
Additional local and area high schools will also be hosting Carr Signing Days at dates to be determined.
Other Carr Distinguished Scholarship recipients are Isaac Hanemann of the Science Academy of South Texas in McAllen; Emily Hecox of Byron P. Steele High School in Schertz; Anna Porter of Stanton High School in Stanton; and Kayli Hall, a home school student in Bridgeport.
Carr Signing Days are being held in conjunction with the university’s I Chose Angelo State celebration to encourage local and area high school students to take a closer look at what ASU has to offer.
Carr Scholarships are funded by a $100 million endowment, one of the largest in the nation at a regional university. Robert G. Carr and his wife, Nona K. Carr, who bequeathed their interests in oil, gas and other minerals from producing properties in West Texas, made the Carr Foundation possible.
