LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Community Foundation of West Texas awarded two Monterey High School seniors scholarships.

Lexie Lyn Burris and Laurel Lynn Baldwin White were the recipients of the prestigious Don & Sybil Harrington Scholarship.

It benefits students wishing to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, physical sciences or engineering.

"So this scholarship is really important to us because we're really grateful for the opportunity to be awarded something for people going into the STEM field," White said. "We're really excited for next year, and to be engineers hopefully in the future."

Burris will be attending the University of Arkansas and White will be attending Vanderbilt University, both plan to major in engineering.

The foundation is awarding eight scholarships to Lubbock County students in the coming weeks for a total of $160,000.
