Local Students Granted Scholarships Announced at Annual Rodeo Award Dinner

Local News

Hundreds of people attended the annual stock show and rodeo association dinner.

The meeting and dinner took place at the Wells Fargo pavilion.  It’s also a thank you for the hundreds of volunteers who help with SASSRA events throughout the year.

Members awarded $136,000 in scholarships this year to 16 Concho Valley recipients.

“You know, it’s great,” said association member Tom Thompson. “A lot of people spend their money and they want to see it go and do good we go through a hundred applicants trying to pick the best of the best, so everybody knows what money they spent at the carnival, at the stock show, at the rodeo. That money goes to a good cause and it helps bring out some of the brightest minds in Texas.”

Stock show association members announced the incoming President Larry Garvin and Mike Boyd as Vice President.
