MLK Commemorative Council gives back to Lubbock high school students

LUBBOCK, Texas -

To help further high school students' education, the Martin Luther King Commemorative Council awarded scholarships to students from the Lubbock area.

The scholarships were named for the late Joan Y. Ervin, a longtime member of the Lubbock I.S.D. Board of Trustees.

Chair of the Joan Y. Ervin Scholarship Committee, Yolanda Jeffery, said, "They have three different essays that they have to write. One is what their expectation is as far as what they want to do once they graduate, their hardship if they're having hardship in doing anything then they write a scholarship for that, and then who they have helped around the community."

The scholarship recipients include:

Zakeia Zhane Collins - Estacado High School

Kenny Hanson - Monterey High School

Mackenzie Boyd - Frenship High School

Quinten Anais Johnson - Frenship High School

Brenley Brooke Perez - Frenship High School

Zoe Grace Salamon - Coronado High School
