Teen Wins Scholarship

One Amarillo student is now the proud owner of a full ride scholarship to West Texas A&M University and a brand new car with gas and insurance paid for, for the next 4 years.

The winner of the full ride project was named today at Westgate Mall. Abbee Jefferies beat our 9 other finalist, from hundreds of applicants, to take home the prize.

Jefferies says, "Just knowing that, everything that has happened in my life, I can go through life and just make things happen."

Residents also had a say in the winner... Casting their votes throughout this year to give Jefferies the edge.

Officials say the project will continue next year.
