Sarah Brown (Class of 2013) was among area finalists in the Spirit category. Since 1988, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times has received nominations for more than 3000 students and provided scholarships for more than 375 area students in its distribution area. Community partner CITGO Refining enabled the Caller-Times to increase scholarships from $500 to $1000 for each winner. The Coastal Bend Community Foundation manages and disburses the funds for these scholarships. Through partnerships with Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University-Kingsville and Del Mar College, if any of these scholarship recipients decide to attend one of these schools, their scholarship will be matched for an additional $1000 towards their education. For each category two winners are selected and the other finalists are listed in the series of articles.
