Cheyenne Whitney and Reily Preston, both 2015 graduates from North Lamar High School, were presented scholarships from the North Lamar Chapter of the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE) to help with their post-secondary expenses.
Preston is planning to attend Oklahoma City University to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in theatre. She participated in many stage performances in the PCT's Children's Theatre program, as well as North Lamar performances. Preston is probably best remembered as Belle from the NLHS Fall production of Beauty & the Beast.
Whitney has been accepted at Tarleton State University in Stephenville on a full-ride Honors Scholarship and plans to major in criminal justice with hopes of becoming a fish and game warden. Whitney is a twin to her brother, Colton, and credits their mom for instilling them with a good work ethic. She currently works two jobs and volunteers in several programs at her church.
“ATPE congratulates these two outstanding students and wishes them well along their chosen path,” said NL- ATPE President Jerry Jarrell.
