Winners of $1,500 scholarships to UTA are SE Campus student Ly Nguyen, who placed first in the TCC District Competition; SE student Nghia Tran; SE student Trang Le, and NE student Sara Menix.

These students, plus others who finished in the top 10 at the District level or first in the campus exams, were honored Friday, April 16, during a ceremony at Trinity River Campus.
