Michiko McMahon – HAGA Scholarship Winner

The Houston Area Glass Association (HAGA) has announced the 2013 scholarship recipient at its Quarterly meeting on July 11th. Michiko McMahon, daughter of HAGA member Jim McMahon with CR Laurence, is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship.

Michiko attends University of Houston with an expected graduation date of 2015. She is active in two volunteer organizations: Honors Ambassadors and Honors Mentors. She graduated from James E Taylor High School in 2011 and lives in Katy, Texas. Michiko’s thoughts on the importance of a college education: “College develops your intellect and strengthens your sense of self. The actual educational component is constantly evolving as you meet new professors and take new classes. The curriculum provides a daily challenge, but the skills and social interactions taken from this environment provide key preparation for succeeding in the professional world.”

The annual scholarship is available to any high school senior or college student referred by a HAGA member. The applicants are judged on a 350 word essay, volunteerism, and school transcripts. Applications are made available on December 1st of the year prior to scholarship award.
