WASHINGTON – Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) announced today the 2018 Rising Lone Star winners from Bowie County.
The recipients included Timothy Brown and Corey Cox from Liberty Eylau High School; Brandy Nicole Swink and Joe Sanders Hendrix from Redwater High School; Emily Jennings and Gage Jones from Maud High School; and Philip Moore and Madison Whisenhunt from Hooks High School.
“Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, and the Rising Lone Star program gives us the opportunity to showcase young folks who’ve distinguished themselves on the fast track to success. I look forward to seeing what they’ll accomplish as thoughtful, engaged members of the Northeast Texas community in the years to come,” Ratcliffe said.
Ratcliffe launched the Rising Lone Star award program to recognize high school students throughout Texas’ 4th District who exhibit outstanding leadership or service in their schools and communities. The recipients are nominated for the Rising Lone Star by their principals, administrators or counselors.
The Rising Lone Star awards were presented to recipients by members of Ratcliffe’s staff during their high schools’ end-of-year ceremonies.
