GROESBECK (April 23, 2013)--A 5K run and 1 mile walk at Old Fort Parker off of Highway 14 will benefit the Angela Ross Scholarship Saturday.
The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. and the 1 mile walk will begin at 9:15 a.m. Registration for both events is $20.
The Angela Ross Scholarship will be given to high school seniors from Mexia and Groesbeck high schools.
“The scholarship was set up in July of 2012 and this is the first year we are giving out the scholarship,” Head of Scholarship Committee Jennifer Paul said.
The scholarship was set up in honor of Angela Ross, who passed away after a motorcycle accident in March of 2012.
Ross’ children along with Paul worked to set up a scholarship in honor of Ross and her work at Mexia and Groesbeck high schools, Paul said.
According to Paul, scholarships will be given out in May to at least one high school senior from Groesbeck High School and one senior from Mexia High School.
Monetary donations for the scholarship have not yet been decided.
