New Caney Students Earn Honor

Three New Caney HS students have been named Posse Scholars. 

McKenzie Barrera - Colby College - Neuroscience major 
Raymundo Maldonado - University of Virginia - Biochemistry major 
JaLynn Smith - University of Virginia - Psychology major 

The program places students in supportive, multicultural groups of 10 students, Posses, with mentoring and full-tuition leadership scholarships to partner colleges. The scholarships are awarded to students with extraordinary potential who might be missed by elite schools. The scholarship amounts are valued at approximately $170,000 each. This is the fourth consecutive year New Caney HS has had students named Posse Scholars.
