Through the South Padre Island Chamber of Commerce’s Laguna Madre Education Foundation, five students from Port Isabel High School were each awarded $1000.00 scholarships. Scholarships are funded through the Chamber Member fundraising efforts at our Annual Gala and Scholarship Fundraiser, and with donations from the SPI Wahoo Classic Fishing Tournament. Since 1996 the Laguna Madre Education Foundation has awarded a total $279,000 to 133 Port Isabel High School graduates. This year’s student recipients (left to right) are Jasmine Bautista, Victor Brian Chavez, Susana Torres, Caitlin O’Leary, and Nisa Luna.
