The directors of the Taylor-Odom Foundation are pleased to announce that it is awarding the sum of $166,000 in college scholarships for the 2021 calendar year. The recipients are nine Liberty County students graduating from area high schools in May.
Twenty-seven students from Dayton, Hardin, Hull-Daisetta, Liberty and Tarkington submitted applications which were reviewed by the Taylor-Odom Foundation directors before final selections were made.
The Taylor-Odom Foundation was founded to honor two parents who instilled in their children that knowledge through higher education and hard work are the keys to a good life.
Each year the Foundation will provide scholarships to graduating seniors from Liberty County, Texas who may not be able to afford higher education.
