Student receives scholarship to Space Camp
Jake Parker, of Killeen, was awarded a scholarship to attend Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala., from July 7 to 12. Parker was among 71 students selected for a full tuition scholarship.
Only 30 percent of students who apply receive full rides.
“To win a full scholarship, a student must submit a truly outstanding application,” said Deborah Barnhart, CEO and executive director of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center museum that is home to the Space Camp programs. “I congratulate Jake on earning a place in the 2013 scholarship class.”
