Steve Francis Foundation Scholarship Celebration is a Success.
The annual Steve Francis Foundation Scholarship Celebration, a program named in honor of Steve’s mother Brenda Wilson, took place on June 20th at the Embassy Suites Downtown Houston. At the Hawaiian Luau themed celebration, which began with a poolside reception, we introduced three new recipients and congratulated two recent graduates who earned their college degrees.
The two graduates, Melissa Perez and Miles Dotson, were honored with a plaque from the Foundation and also received special recognition from City Council Member Jerry Davis, who was in attendance. Melissa graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and a criminal justice minor. Miles Dotson graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering and performed one of his original songs at the event.
The three new 2012 recipients, Corinthia Williams, Angie DeWalt, and Jorge Pineda, were also introduced. Corinthia attended Royal High School and will be going to Texas A&M University to study Kinesiology. Corinthia won Boys & Girls Clubs Youth of the Year and would like to become an athletic trainer. Angie attended Carroll Senior High School and will be going to the University of Houston to study optometry or chemistry. Angie is continuing the legacy like her sisters, Warnessa and Alexis, in receiving the Brenda Wilson Scholarship. Jorge Pineda attended South Houston High School and will be going to Texas State University San Marcos to study criminal justice. Jorge played soccer, football, and track in high school, as well as being the captain on the debate team for 2 years.
