Local families receive scholarships at Magnolia Bowl

Chick-fil-A and H-E-B teamed up to give scholarship money to Magnolia area students

HOUSTON — Magnolia High School and Magnolia West High School are rivals on the football field, but it was the parents of some of those high school students who fought it out on the field for the chance to win college scholarship money.

Chick-fil-A and H-E-B teamed up to give this scholarship money to Magnolia, TX, area families in the Magnolia Bowl Scholarship Scramble.  

Kendrick Skipper, owner/operator for the Magnolia and Alden Bridge/The Woodlands Chick-fil-A, and Gary Hefner, general manager for the Magnolia H-E-B, talked with Deborah Duncan about the importance of supporting the  community for the continuing education of area students.

One of the winners was Brad Heitzman, whose son Brady was nominated for his family to participate in the Scholarship Scramble.  Brady is a senior at Magnolia High School and plays football for the high school team.  He hopes to attend Texas A&M University to study business.
