2018 RGV LEAD Scholarship Recipient  STEM 2018 RGV LEAD Scholarship Recipient

Congratulations to Leslie Canales, a senior here at Thelma R. Salinas T-STEM Early College High School, for receiving the $5,000 RGV Linking Economic and Academic Development (LEAD) Scholarship!

This was the one and only scholarship awarded by RGV LEAD, as Leslie competed with many students from across the Rio Grande Valley, and will be able to use this scholarship at any college or university of her choice.

Leslie will graduate as a 2018 RGV LEAD Scholar from a college-and-career-preparatory program of study that includes two or more Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses for three credits or more with college credit, either through articulation or dual credit.

Another one of her many distinguished accomplishments is the completion of a career pathway in Information Technology with an emphasis on Computer Programming.

The district’s CTE Department is proud of Leslie and wishes her the continuation of a successful postsecondary education.
