    "Thank you so very much for your exceptional generosity.  Words truly cannot express how grateful, thankful, and every other "ful" I am for your scholarship.  Without its help, I wouldn't have been able to be blessed with knowing 100% how I am going to finance my first year of college.  Again, thank you a million times over for your wonderful gift of $1,000.  You've been an answer to my prayers!"

  • 2011 Scholar

    “I am honored to be named one of the Texas State Farm Scholar Athletes for 2011. I would like to thank you for the recognition and $1,000. The funds will be very helpful in paying my college expenses. It is very kind of you to reward those representing their school in athletic participation. I am very thankful to have achieved success in both of these areas my senior year of high school by playing in the State Volleyball Tournament and graduating at the top of my class. My involvement in sports over the past four years has also allowed me to develop leadership skills on the court, and time management skills between my practices, homework, and other club involvement. Once again, I would like to say thank you…”

    "I just wanted to write and thank you for the State Farm Texas Scholar Award.  It is great that you give back to the community, especially in the way of furthering education.  I will definitely be able to use the award.  A&M is over 250 miles from my home town, so it will probably go to pay for gas.  Thanks again for your commitment to the community."

  • 2011 Parent

    “I want to say thanks on behalf of my wife and myself. I am a coach at Marble Falls (27 years) and a State Farm customer for 20 plus years. We have nominated several outstanding candidates in the past but none have ever been chosen. Our counselors were very excited about [one of our students] winning the award/scholarship. As parents we are very proud of our daughter and encouraged her to pursue every opportunity to apply for various scholarships. I appreciate when a scholarship demands some work on the application because I believe that students who are willing to fill out the paperwork, write essays, and do interviews make themselves worthy recipients… Thanks again.”
