Making a Difference in Local Lives
“The Pi-Squared Scholarship is for those inquisitive students who are trailblazers within their families. I know they will have tremendous success at college and in their careers. I just ask them: remember to share a slice of Texas pecan pie with the teachers and family that made their success possible.”
