2015 Velma Carter Spring Showcase Scholarship Recipients
On the weekend of May 16, the Fort Bend Texans welcomed eight baseball players from inner city schools in Natchez and Greenville, Mississippi who have been selected as the 2015 recipients of the 2nd Annual Velma Carter Scholarship Award for Houston Spring Showcase.
We are proud to provide an opportunity for these talented young men to travel to Houston and work with our Fort Bend Texans players and coaches, and to showcase their talents in front of local scouts. Thank you to our Mississippi sponsors (Rev. Willie Smith and retired Air Force Master Sergeant and ROTC instructor Steve Hinton) and all of our local donors who have made this wonderful outreach program possible. We would also like to thank Paul Hicks, Search Ministries Houston, who joined us on Sunday morning to deliver a message of encouragement.
The Fort Bend Texans believe in Giving God the Glory, and building men of character through baseball. We could not do it without your faithful and continued support!
