New London, Texas (KETK) — West Rusk Independent School District released a statement on Thursday stating the funding for the West Rusk seniors promised scholarships has still not come in.
The statement can be read below:
Mr. Robert Jordan called and informed me last night that the ETBU Scholarships for the graduating seniors at West Rusk High School could not be finalized by this Friday as was indicated early this week. The actual deadline for ETBU to receive the money for the scholarships is Wednesday, July 31, 2013. Mr. Sturghill had to return to London, England to complete several last minute legal documents. He was to fly out of Houston today at noon. Mr. Jordan has contacted ETBU President, Dr. Dub Oliver, to make him aware of these unexpected last minute details that have to be addressed.
Even though we expected everything to be finalized by Friday, Robert and I are not only hopeful, but we fully believe that all the details will be finalized by the middle of next week. The campus administrators are in the process of notifying parents and students awaiting the ETBU Scholarships.
