Austin, Texas (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Turnquist Partners Realtors, Inc. (“Turnquist Partners”) and the Rotary Club of Lake Travis have announced the winner of the Turnquist Partners Excellence Award, which is a scholarship awarded each year to one student of Lake Travis High School.
The Scholarship is awarded every year from proceeds generated during the Rotary Club of Lake Travis annual car raffle, which happens in the fall. Turnquist Partners has been the primary sponsor of the car raffle for 13 years and from this event, has been able to give a scholarship each year named the Turnquist Partners Excellence Award to one deserving Lake Travis High School student. The Lake Travis Rotary Club selects the Turnquist Partners Excellence Award recipient based on the student’s financial need, community service and potential for success. This year’s recipient is Cora Fanning and she will be attending Texas A&M in the fall to study Pre-Nursing.
“College is expensive and every bit helps,” says Cora Fanning. “I am so grateful for this scholarship and Turnquist Partners for giving me the opportunity to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse.”
“Turnquist Partners has raised over $80,000 for scholarships in the last 13 years,” says Kathryn Scarborough, President and Realtor of Turnquist Partners. “This scholarship could mean the difference of attending college or not for these kids. We are so happy for Cora and wish her the best of luck at Texas A&M in the fall.”
