ALPINE According to a press release, seven graduate students at Sul Ross State University‘s Borderlands Research Institute have been chosen to receive a total of $46,500 in scholarships from seven different sources, including the first-ever scholarships from the Wes and Victoria Bannister Scholarship and the Wayne and JoAnn Moore Endowed Scholarship.
After the Bannisters passed away, their family created the Wes and Victoria Bannister Scholarship. The Bannisters had lived in Alpine for a very long time, and they cherished the area’s natural splendor and ecological richness. Their family commemorates their legacies through a permanent endowment fund and yearly student scholarships to the Borderlands Research Institute at Sul Ross State University. They were ardent supporters of wildlife conservation and charity in the area.
Dr. Louis Harveson, the Dan Allen Hughes, Jr., Borderlands Research Institute Endowed Director at Sul Ross State University, said in the news release, “We are very thankful to the Bannister and Moore families and their support of our students that will be felt well into the future.
“Our students work really hard to complete their degrees, and many borrow money while completing their coursework and thesis projects.”
We are appreciative of the assistance of these excellent businesses and sponsors since these scholarships represent an investment in the future.
