KPRC 2 and Texas Mattress Makers are surprising 20 deserving high school seniors with scholarships. All students selected for scholarships have been nominated by their high schools.
This academic year was particularly challenging because of the pandemic, but these students still rose above and beyond in school.
The 14th $2,500 Senior Scholarship was awarded to Puneet Basra from Cy-Ranch High School in the Cy-Fair Independent School District. She has been attending classes virtually and has been able to maintain a 6.3 GPA. She is ranked 235 in her class out of 804.
Basra plans to go to the University of Texas San Antonio where she wants to get a degree that will help move her toward her goal of becoming a pediatrician.
