On Thursday, June 12, Driscoll Children's Hospital held the Auxiliary to Driscoll Children's Hospital Scholarship reception for students who earned scholarships from the hospital.
18-year-old Denali Huff of Rockport-Fulton and 18-year-old Andrew Laury of Calallen received the Marcia J. Scholarship Award from the hospital on Thursday. Both Huff and Laury are former oncology patients at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
Laury had attended Calallen Middle School and Calallen High School before relocating to Van Vleck after his sophomore year. In 2010, the Calallen community had rallied around Laury during his treatment for a cancerous brain tumor. Laury plans to use his scholarship to attend Wharton County Junior College.
Huff, who had battled ovarian cancer, graduated from Rockport-Fulton High School, plans to use her scholarship to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles.
