TUMCA Scholarships Awarded to Rio Texas Conference Students

The Texas United Methodist College Association has awarded scholarships to eleven Rio Texas Conference Students.

Bishop Dan Solomon, President of TUMCA, in announcing the awards commented, “These scholarships represent a personal and powerful use of funds contributed to TUMCA by the local churches of the Conference.”

Scholarship recipients must be United Methodist students from the state of Texas.  No TUMCA funds are used for “brick and mortar.”

Solomon also stated, “When local churches support TUMCA, they are not only helping young people from this conference, they are making an investment in their faith and their skills for ministry and service.”

TUMCA scholarship recipients for 2014-15 from the Rio Texas Conference are:
