The Woman’s Club of Pleasanton recently awarded 20 scholarships to Atascosa County high school graduates. The students honored represented Pleasanton, Jourdanton, Poteet and Charlotte high schools, as well as the county and those who are homeschooled. Each student received a $1,500 scholarship.

In 1937, the club established the Florence Bowen Smith English Award for the Pleasanton High School senior with the highest grade point average in English. The initial prize was a dictionary to aid them in their higher education endeavors, but was later changed to a $500 scholarship.

The scholarships are made possible through community support and the Woman’s Club Thrift Shop.
