EAGLE PASS, Texas (June 18, 2018) - IBC Bank-Eagle Pass continues their support of higher education by awarding area students with the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship as they venture into college and start a new chapter of their lives. Scholarships are granted to students who demonstrated a "Do More" attitude and leadership in student and community affairs throughout their years in high school.
An event was held at IBC Bank-Eagle Pass where $4,000 in scholarships were handed out to deserving students from three high schools.
"The students who were selected to receive the scholarship award are examples of IBC Bank's ‘We Do More' philosophy," said IBC Bank Sr. Vice President and Sales Manager Larry Martin. "We are extremely honored to assist in the pursuit of their higher education goals."
Born into a humble family, Antonio R. Sanchez, Sr., the namesake of the scholarship award, was a strong supporter of making higher education available to those interested in bettering their lives. Sanchez's commitment to the power of learning lives on in the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship Award, which is bestowed annually on deserving high school seniors in Texas and Oklahoma.
"It gives me great joy to see the expression on the faces of the students and their parents as we call their name to be recognized; then we hand them a check for $1,000, which they will use to defray the costs of going to college," said Hector Cerna, President and CEO of IBC Bank-Eagle Pass. "We love giving back to our community and know the awards are appreciated."
