LUBBOCK, Texas -

A handful of Lubbock seniors are receiving college scholarships. 

The Community Foundation of West Texas awards nine high school seniors $20,000 each for four years thanks to the Don & Sybil Harrington Scholarship Endowment.

Scholarship recipients include Colen Cannon, Sarah Going, Benjamin Cheatham, Kathrine Grace, Marika Perlmutter, John Elihu Poquiz, Amy yang, Shao-Lan Yeh, and Molly Smith. All students received the award for being exceptional in the classroom and plan on majoring in science, mathematics, or engineering.

"You're working off SAT scores, you're working off ACT scores, you're working off grade point average, but you're also looking at student's motivation in their particular field, math, science, engineering, they're motivation for study. So those are the criteria for when they apply for this grant." Community Founder President Stephen Warren said. 

The Community foundation gives out these scholarships every year. This is the tenth year so far.
