For graduating students, these last few weeks have been a time of reflection—to commemorate academic achievements and appreciate the value of relationships formed with teachers, coaches, friends, and mentors.
For student employees at Eagle’s Trace, an Erickson Senior Living community in West Houston, it also represents a chance to be recognized for their hard work and set up for success through investment in their academic futures.
At the scholars’ ceremony on June 12, two student employees from the Dining Services Department were granted four-year scholarships through the Student Scholarship Fund at Eagle’s Trace. Nearly $100,000 was raised during this year’s campaign, with contributions made mainly from residents.
“The residents of Eagle’s Trace make a tremendous difference in the lives of student employees here,” says Executive Director Steve Aigner. “They recognize the benefits of helping young people succeed, and they want to be a part of advancing their education and skill development.”
“I would also like to thank the Resident Scholarship Committee, whose members dedicated several months to assisting students with the application process and providing valuable mentorship,” notes Mr. Aigner. “We so appreciate you!”
Zeenat Adams, a member of the dining services team and a former scholar at Eagle’s Trace, provided a keynote address to the Student Scholars Class of 2022.
