Williams Foundation; and Stafford High School's Alexa Pete also received $2,000 from an Emerald Circle scholarship.
Several $1,000 Emerald Circle scholarships were given out. Among the recipients were Caroline Batten, Sharmistha Maity and Diana Yang of Bellaire High School; Ashley Cubley and Kira Kurtzman of Clear Lake High School; and Kathleen Smith of Challenge Early High School.
Joanne Williams, Emerald Circle president, presented the awards.
