SSA Scholarship

A teacher’s recommendation stated that Fort Worth Carter-Riverside’s Jacqueline Bunyavong ‘smiles during calculus.’ For persevering in the classroom and as an athlete – Bunyavong is the first Fort Worth ISD girl to win a UIL wrestling state title – the senior on Friday was named the Optimist Club of Fort Worth’s 67th annual Scholarship, Sportsmanship and Athletics award winner. Bunyavong, who will study mechanical engineering at Texas A&M, receives a $5,000 scholarship. The club awarded $23,500 in scholarships to 11 FWISD athletes Friday.
