More than twenty students were given a good start in pursuing a college education Monday.
Students from both Bryan and College Station High Schools were presented with New Horizon scholarships.
The New Horizon Scholarship program has given more than 100 college bound youngsters in the area $1,000 college scholarships since 1993.
Financial need, grades, attendance, letters of recommendation and a personal essay were all part of the criteria that went into selecting a recipient.
The scholarships were funded solely from community donations.
