Christopher Eason
Splendora ISD
Texas A&M University-College Station

Christopher Eason is using his TCTA scholarship to attend Texas A&M University-College Station after two years at Sam Houston State. He is pursuing a degree in electrical engineering and plans to enlist in the Marines and attend officer training school after completing his undergraduate education. His future plans also include earning a master’s degree. His TCTA scholarship was increased from $500 for 2013-14 to $2,000 for 2014-15.

Splendora High School teacher Patricia Franklin nominated Eason for the scholarship. “Christopher has a level of maturity that is rarely seen in an 18-year-old high school student,” she wrote in her nomination. “He comes from a Christian family with high expectations for all their children, and I believe he will make them proud.”
