IBC Bank Eagle-Pass Awards Scholarships to Area Graduates
IBC Bank - Eagle Pass honors 8 high school seniors with the A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarship
(July 24, 2020) EAGLE PASS - For the 19th consecutive year, IBC Bank-Eagle Pass is promoting higher education by awarding a combined $8,000 in scholarships to eight area high school graduates, as they embark upon college and a new chapter of their adult lives.
IBC Bank-Eagle Pass began this market-wide scholarship initiative in 2002 to provide the opportunity for higher education to youth from low to moderate-income households. Born into a humble family, Antonio R. Sanchez, Sr., the namesake of the scholarship award and the founder of IBC Bank, 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 Scholarship, which is bestowed annually upon deserving high school seniors in Texas and Oklahoma.
"We are honored to support this scholarship initiative for nineteen years in honor of A.R. Sanchez, Sr. a leader who embodied IBC Bank's ‘We Do More' philosophy," said IBC Bank-Eagle Pass President and CEO Hector Cerna. "These bright young students are the future business leaders of our region and we are proud to assist them in their pursuit of higher education and success."
This year, IBC Bank-Eagle Pass presented a total of eight A.R. Sanchez, Sr. Memorial Scholarships, each valued at $1,000, across four area high schools. Scholarship recipients included:
Regina Pena Eagle Pass High School
Diana Lara Eagle Pass High School
Iris Ramirez CC Winn High School
