Dr. Liles Scholarship Winner Announced
Texas State Technical College Marshall is pleased to announce the first recipient of the Dr. Larry Liles Scholarship. The $250 scholarship is awarded to firstsemester veteran students who complete the application process, which includes letters of recommendation and a short essay.
Jonathan Johnson, first-semester welding student, holds the distinction of being the first student to receive the scholarship. Mr. Johnson was a Fuel Supply Specialist in the Army until 1997.
“I was a welder’s helper and wanted to become a welder and get the certificate TSTC offers,” said Johnson.
Dr. Larry Liles, a Navy veteran, served as a Program Chair at Texas State Technical College Marshall. Dr. Liles passed away approximately a year ago and the scholarship was set up in his memory.
Mr. Johnson was thrilled to receive the scholarship and says the money will go towards books and his welding kit.
