Westbury High School senior Alondra Garcia (pictured) and Sharpstown High School senior Sarahi Gomez were awarded the 2023 Doug Miller and Don Sanders Scholarship. The scholarship fund was founded in 2019 by Bellaire resident Colleen Sweeney and Kathy Butler to honor their husbands’ memories and provide disadvantaged students the opportunity to continue their education after high school. Scholarship recipients receive funds for a four-year college experience including tuition, living expenses, laptop, books, and study-abroad fees. Both winners are the first in their families to begin a post-secondary degree. Scholarship winner Alondra Garcia will attend Texas A&M University where she will study to become a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse. Sarahi Gomez will attend Texas Woman’s University and study to become a dental hygienist. To learn more about the Doug Miller and Don Sanders Scholarship, visit dmdsscholarship.org.
