Schreiner Announces Hatton Sumners Scholars
Four Schreiner University sophomores have been selected as Hatton Sumners Scholars for 2011 and 2012. The new scholars are Andrew Bell, from Seabrook, Texas; Avery Gil, San Antonio; Chelsea Mack, Llano, Texas; and Maggie Rios, Brownsville, Texas. The four will receive a scholarship for their junior and senior years at Schreiner. They have been invited to attend their first Distinguished Lecture on May 12 with Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and Fox talk show host.

The Hatton W. Sumners Foundation chooses scholars on the basis of the strength of their applications, resumes, an essay and an interview with the foundation’s trustees. In addition to generous scholarships, the students will attend educational and leadership conferences, funded by grants from the foundation, throughout the academic year.

“This group represents some of our most accomplished and ambitious students,” said Beth Bourland, associate director of development for foundation relations. “They are to be commended on their accomplishments, poise and determination.”
