Central Tx Farm Credit Scholarship
Tuesday, November 17, 2020
Throughout the rest of the school year – I will be doing giveaways for FAFSA completion, college application completion, and scholarship completion. Each individual giveaway will be for $20 gift cards to places such as Whataburger, Sonic, Chick-Fil-A, Target, and some gas cards thrown in there.
The first few giveaways will be for FAFSA completion and college application completion. Come to my office to drop off confirmations for either FAFSA completion or your college application completions (or both!!!) and be entered into the drawing. Multiple college applications = multiple entries in the drawing. The first drawing for a Chick-Fil-A gift card and a Target gift card will be the Monday we get back from Thanksgiving (Nov. 30).
At the end of the year, I will take all of the confirmations I received throughout the year and do a giveaway for an iPad – so the more confirmations you turn in – the better your chances.
We will be announcing more details on the announcements – but if you have any questions, shoot me an e-mail or drop by my office. Have a great day!
