“I am so grateful to y’all for investing in the future education of myself, and other students in Marble Falls to carry on Cooper’s legacy. I promise to carry on his memory with honor and integrity. It is an honor to be selected for such a prestigious award, and I am deeply appreciative of your confidence in me. Thank you for showing a willingness to contribute to my future education at Texas A&M University. I will be studying Allied Health with the goal of eventually obtaining a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy, with the hopes of one day owning my own practice. Again, thank you for investing in my future, and I will eagerly look for opportunities to pay it forward.”

“Thank you again for selecting me as a scholarship recipient this year, I’m honored to help live out sweet Coop’s legacy! What a ray of sunshine he was to our community, and I am privileged to share the zest for life that he had! I will be attending Texas A&M University majoring in Agricultural Economics! I have looked forward to being a Fightin Texas Aggie for my whole life, so this next chapter of my life is truly a dream come true! I want to be a positive role model and influence to all I encounter whether it’s at school, in clubs, other activities, football games, or anywhere else! I want to continue to be a strong voice and supporter of Agriculture and all that it stands for as I hope to one day have a career in Ag Sales or Marketing! Thank you for believing in me and making my transition to Aggieland possible!”
