Faith Ozer
La Vernia ISD
Trinity University

Ozer, a 2011 graduate of La Vernia High School in La Vernia ISD, received her first TCTA scholarship in 2011. She attends Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she is a pre-med student. Her TCTA scholarship was renewed for the third time for 2014-15.

“The TCTA scholarship has allowed me to ... attend the university of my dreams,” she wrote in her 2013-14 renewal application. “Without this financial assistance, I could never dream of studying abroad or eventually attending graduate school.”

Ozer says the scholarship has allowed her to seek a double major in anthropology.
