TREA Student Scholarships

The TREA Student Scholarships are awarded annually to 20-30 graduating high school seniors. This year we had 218 completed scholarship applications. The judges selected 24 scholarship recipients this year.  The winners will be celebrated at the Opening Banquet during the TREA Summer Conference and are always one of the highlights of the Conference. Thanks, again, to all businesses and individuals who contributed to the Scholarship Program.

Here are this year's winners and sponsors! CONGRATULATIONS!
