North Central Texas College

Janet “Ezzie” Aguilar, a 2013 graduate of Gainesville High School, is using her $250 TCTA scholarship to attend North Central Texas College.

Aguilar’s goal is to be the first in her family to complete college. Her major is undecided. “I want to pursue a career that I will enjoy and be good at,” she wrote in her application. “I want to pursue a career that will maintain a stable life for me.”

Gainesville High School counselor Rachel Strait nominated Aguilar for the scholarship. “Ezzie is a dedicated student, and is very responsible,” she wrote in her nomination. “I feel that all her qualities – her dedication, her desire to go to college and complete the necessary steps, and her responsibility – will make her an excellent college student.”
