Investing in the lives of students

One June 19 five recent ECISD graduates received a generous gift of $5,000 each in the form of college scholarships from One Objective. The scholarships are the next step in the work of One Objective, a non-profit organization in Odessa that provides mentoring and resources to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering them to achieve.

The aptly-named Pathways By One Objective Scholarship recognizes students who have demonstrated academic excellence and personal strengths of character and perseverance. The Anthony Bolton Scholarship honors the legacy of the late Anthony Bolton by supporting students who have shown resilience, leadership, and dedication to their studies. Recipients were selected based on an application and essay submission.

Congratulations to the five scholarship recipients:

  • Rihanna Coker, Odessa Collegiate Academy, Texas Southern University
  • Ivania Montesino Rios, Permian High School, the University of Texas Permian Basin
  • Alexia Noda Rodriguez, Permian HS, UTPB
  • Ashlynn Elliott, Permian HS, Sam Houston State University
  • Kubra Kocak, New Tech Odessa, University of Texas (not pictured)
