Water Valley H.S. Student Receives Top Scholarship to ASU
Tyler Hoover, a senior at Water Valley High School, has been awarded a Distinguished Carr Scholarship worth up to $60,000 to attend Angelo State University this fall.
The Distinguished Carr Scholarship is ASU’s most prestigious scholarship for academic achievement. To recognize Hoover for his accomplishments, ASU will conduct a Carr Signing Day event at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 25, at Water Valley High School. Hoover plans to major in health science professions at ASU and has also been accepted into the ASU Honors Program.
Carr Scholarships are renewable for four years and range in value from $1,000 to $15,000 per year. Scholarship awards are based on high school grade point average and standardized test scores on the ACT or SAT college entrance exams. Fewer than 10 Distinguished Carr Scholarships are awarded to new incoming students per year, providing each recipient with $15,000 annually. To be selected for the top award, students must score at least 32 on the ACT, 1400 on the old SAT or 1450 on the new SAT; maintain a high school cumulative GPA of at least 3.5; and interview with ASU administrators.
Other 2017 Carr Distinguished Scholarship recipients are Jane Bacon of Victory Christian School in Albuquerque, N.M., Rachel Beggs of Brentwood Christian School in Austin, home school student Phyllis “Kate” Creecy of Corinth, Christina Hamilton of Hebron High School in Carrollton, and Douglas Newcomer of Denton High School in Denton.
Carr Scholarships are funded by a $130 million endowment, one of the largest in the nation at a regional university. Robert G. Carr and his wife, Nona K. Carr, who bequeathed their interests in oil, gas and other minerals from producing properties in West Texas, made the Carr Foundation possible.
