The Coppell Lions are proud to announce the winner of their annual scholarship is Seshu Brahma, senior at Coppell High School.  Subject to academic achievement, Ms. Brahma will be eligible to receive a $1000 college scholarship each year she is eligible for up to four years.

Each year the Coppell Lions honor a hometown college-bound senior with a four year scholarship. This is a tradition that has been in place now for 33 years, resulting in well over $120,000 being awarded to our community’s future contributors.  Incoming Coppell Lions Club President Melinda Helsley did the honors  during the Coppell High School Senior Awards Ceremony on May 25th. Seshu will attend Texas A&M University  majoring in computer science and environmental engineering.  She hopes to eventually work on technological advances that will protect and preserve the environment.

The Lions open up their application process at the first of the Spring semester each year. Student must complete the application process, which includes exploration of the applicant’s goals, objectives, academic record and financial need. The scholarship committee reviews these applications and calls in a chosen number of outstanding candidates for personal interviews.  A final decision is reached in the process and the scholarship is awarded.  In the history of the award, every recipient has gone to college as expected and graduated.

“We’re very proud of the youth in our community that bring so much enthusiasm and spirit into our lives. Their future is very bright and we’ll continue to do everything we can to encourage their leadership and growth,” said current President Ed Darling.
