High School Students in Fort Bend County Honored with Scholarships by Reliant and Houston Texans

May 20 2024

Six outstanding Houston-area high school seniors including Foster and Seven Lakes High School students in Fort Bend County, have each been awarded a $10,000 scholarship through the Scholarships for Champions program, courtesy of Reliant and the Houston Texans. The surprise announcement was made during a special event hosted at the Houston Texans facilities with a surprise check presentation and a "player for a day" experience, according to a release by Reliant.

Since its initiation in 2005, the collaboration between Reliant and the Houston Texans has awarded almost 110 students with merit scholarships, amassing over $710,000 in funding. The Scholarships for Champions program acknowledges the commitment of student-athletes to their academics, athleticism, and engagement within their respective communities.

Reliant's senior director of community relations, Leanne Schneider, stated, “We are moved by the inspirational stories of each of these student-athletes – their resilience, dedication, and unwavering commitment on the field, in the classroom, and in the community serve as examples to all."

This year's scholarships recipients, all of whom thrive in a variety of sports, originate from Harris, Waller, Fort Bend, and Brazoria Counties. The students were confidentially nominated for this honor by their teachers, mentors, and coaches.

Avary Grover, a senior at Foster High School, serves as the co-captain of her cheerleading team in addition to her success in varsity diving where she accomplished Academic All-District accolades throughout her high school career. An engaged member of the National Honor Society and Health Occupations Students of America, Avary's dedication to academics placed her within the top 6% of her graduating class.

Representing Seven Lakes High School, senior Brooke Jackson has not only made her mark in her school but also on a national stage as a track sensation. With two consecutive years of gaining the title of USA Track and Field National Champion in the 100-meter dash, Brooke is a formidable athlete. Her leadership extends outside athletics, as she also holds the position of Vice President of the Family, Career & Community Leaders of America Club and is part of the National Honor Society as well as the College Board National Recognition Program. A dedicated volunteer, Brooke has committed a hundred hours each year of her high school career to service.

Other notable recipients include Dade Delva from Northbrook High School, Hagen Greenberg from Sweeny High School, Da’Vaughn Johnson from Furr High School, and Akyrah King from Hempstead High School all of whom have showcased remarkable dedication to their academics and sports while consistently serving their communities.
