These scholarships were awarded based on academic performance, attendance and commitment to the educational process. Outstanding high school seniors that met a GPA eligibility requirement, verified attendance requirements and had no discipline infractions were eligible to apply for the monetary award. Students submitted an essay and a verification of enrollment in a post-secondary school or university.
These were the students recognized this year:

In order to apply for this award, the students needed to have at least a 2.5 GPA (4.0 scale), be highly involved with their school and submit an essay where they talked about a significant experience, achievement, risk taken or an ethical dilemma they have faced.
Talik Johnson, a Captain Shreve High School graduate said, “I will now plan to attend the University of Louisiana Lafayette, and I plan to major in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering. And my plan after college is to work for a pharmaceutical company and my goal is to find a cure for all types of cancer and epilepsy. I just want to say thank you so much to Ternium. This is a blessing and it will definitely not go to waste.”
