2018 Fine Arts Scholarship Winners

Three Haltom High School Students Awarded $500 Scholarships

2018 haltom city fine arts scholarship winnersThe City of Haltom City presented three Haltom City graduating seniors with a $500 Fine Arts Student Scholarship at the Northeast Tarrant County Chamber of Commerce’s May, 2018 Scholarship luncheon as well as the Haltom High School Senior Awards Ceremony. This year’s winners are Arisahi Rosas, Giselle Carrillo and Alejandro Saucedo.

These scholarships are a way for the City to support the students of our community while also promoting the importance of the fine arts in education. We recognize how important these young adults are in building a strong community.
