West Rusk, TX (KETK) — During an awards ceremony on Wednesday, West Rusk students got the surprise of their life.
West Rusk superintendent Tommy Alexander made the announcement that all graduating seniors from West Rusk CISD will receive a full academic scholarship to East Texas Baptist University in Marshall, as long as they meet the proper requirements for admissions.
This is not just a one-year-deal. It will continue for years.
A 1949 West Rusk alumni who attended East Texas Baptist University is funding the scholarships.
