Lee, Gober & Reyna Injury Scholarship
At Lee, Gober and Reyna, we firmly believe that higher education is the foundation of our future. All students should have the opportunity to further their education to achieve their career and life goals.
The Lee, Gober and Reyna Injury Scholarship aims to alleviate some of the financial burdens for deserving students pursuing their post-secondary education. Our scholarship committee will hold an essay contest each fall and spring semester, awarding $1,000 to a winning student. This means $2,000 in scholarship cash is up for grabs each academic year.
