Dear PCLDA Members,
For many years our organization has offered the Dale Lawrence scholarship to graduating Seniors of PCLDA members. These scholarships are named in honor of Dr. Dale Lawrence, former Superintendent of Instruction for HPISD and former principal of Hyer Elementary School.
These scholarships are only given to students who have successfully dealt with a diagnosed learning difference and to families who have been PCLDA members for the last 2 years.
We would love for all our graduating seniors to apply for one of these scholarships.
Applications will be live in February 2018 for the Dale Lawrence Scholarship for HPISD students on the HPISD Website. Students outside of HPISD please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application.
Please encourage your senior to apply!!!
Please encourage other parents of sophomores and younger you know to join PCLDA, so they can apply when they are seniors!
