Cypress Ridge senior Silvia Navarrete is surprised as KPRC Channel 2 anchor Rachel McNeill delivers a KPRC Senior Scholarship to her during class on Feb. 17.
Throughout the spring, KPRC representatives are traveling to various high schools to surprise students with $2,500 scholarships to a college of their choice. Morning anchor and CFISD alumna Rachel McNeill presented Navarrete with a scholarship on Feb. 17.
The giveaway aired during the KPRC morning news on Feb. 22. Navarrete was nominated by her counselor, Jessica Jensen.
“Silvia is amazing,” Jensen said. “She does what she needs to get it done. She serves in her community, and now it’s time to give back to her.”
When she is not perfecting her studies, Cypress Ridge senior Silvia Navarrete volunteers with the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department.
Navarrete, who offers her time with the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department, plans to attend Sam Houston State University and major in psychology.
“I feel very honored,” Navarrete said. “There are many other top students in this school who are qualified for this scholarship. I feel extremely grateful for the opportunity and can’t thank Mrs. Jensen enough.”
