San Jacinto College students awarded science, math scholarship
San Jacinto College students Daniel Ortuno, Emanuel Salazar and Daniel Rodriguez have been awarded scholarships from the Houston Chemical Association for their excellence in science and math.
All three students received a $500 scholarship toward their tuition. Salazar and Rodriguez plan to transfer to the University of Houston and Ortuno intends to transfer to Texas A&M.
"Scholarships like this one definitely help get through college as a full-time student," Rodriguez said in the press release. "This definitely boosts my confidence."
Rodriguez and Ortuno also received the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation scholarships and were chosen for the Texas Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Scholars program.
Salazar also received the chemistry department scholarship from San Jacinto and the Stars scholarship from the school's foundation.
"These students exemplify the dedication and passion that is very much needed in chemistry," Ann Cartwright, chair of the Central Campus physical science department, said in the release. "Not only do they aim to excel in one area, they serve as role models to show others the rewards that come from an education in science and math."
The Houston Chemical Association will present its scholarships at the Houston Chemical Christmas Scholarship Social in December.
