Noah Garcia, a graduating high school senior from Portland, Texas, was awarded our 2017 All American Scholarship. Recently, he was featured in a special spotlight article in the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, written by reporter Quinton Martinez.

Noah became a Catholic Life Member when his grandmother purchased a life insurance policy for him. So, he was very excited to share with his grandmother that he received our 2017 All American Scholarship thanks in part to her gift many years ago.

Our scholarship program seeks to reward bright young students for their hard work, good grades and kind hearts.

Noah maintains an excellent grade point average while also participating in many school clubs, sports and community service projects. A few of his extracurricular activities include varsity baseball and basketball, the cross-country team, Mu Alpha Theta , and the Triumph Over Kid Cancer Club. Noah has been an altar server at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church since the 3rd grade. He has also traveled with the Missions Program to help those less fortunate and spent summers volunteering at the Driscoll Hospital.

Noah graduated from Incarnate Word Academy in the spring. He  plans to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio this fall and major in accounting. After graduation, Noah plans to become an accountant.

We are so proud of Noah and wish him all the best as he embarks on this new journey to pursue higher education.

About our All American Scholarship Program: Each year, we award 35 college scholarships worth $1,000 each to graduating high school seniors who are also Catholic Life members. Winners are selected based on their community service, scholastic achievement, and an essay describing their most valuable volunteer experience.
