Lubbock, TX (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
For the second consecutive year, Hellas Construction sponsored its Hellas Construction Scholar Athlete Scholarship. Hellas’ Roland Murray presented the $2,000 scholarship on Wednesday night to Coronado’s Greg Hewett at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center on the Texas Tech University Campus. Hewett’s nomination came from his football coach who told Mr. Murray that Hewitt had “the strongest moral compass” of any player he’d ever had. The Texas Tech Chapter of The National Football Foundation selects an amateur football athlete to receive the Scholarship based on nominations from administrators and coaches for outstanding achievements on and off the football field.
“It’s a great scholarship program, and I’m glad we’re a part of it,” commented Roland Murray, Business Development Manager with Hellas Construction.
In addition to the Hellas Construction Scholar Athlete scholarship, the Texas Tech Chapter of The National Football Foundation recognized key individuals who have made a positive impact in amateur football. E.J. Holub, Louis Kelley, Johnny Taylor, Ken Patterson, Brad Davis, Kyle Maxfield, Bob Stanley, Cody Davice, and Joe Alexander all received awards during Wednesday evening’s banquet.
Last year, the winner of the Hellas Construction Scholar Athlete scholarship was Tanner Moore, from Seminole High School in Seminole, Texas. Tanner is currently attending West Texas A&M University as a junior and studying Economics. Recently, he made The President's List at West Texas A&M, which recognizes students who have achieved a 4.0 GPA.
“Our commitment to Texas football runs deep,” said Reed J. Seaton, President and CEO of Hellas Construction. “Showing our support for outstanding athletes reinforces Hellas’ commitment to athletics and academics.”
