AHS Senior Surprised as KPRC2 Senior Scholarship Winner

 AHS Kaitlyn Smith
Kaitlyn Smith and her classmates at Atascocita High School were surprised when KPRC anchor/reporter Sara Donchey presented her with a $2500 check for being selected as a KPRC2 Senior Scholarship winner! Sweetening the day even further, a representative from Mattress 1 One presented Kaitlyn with a $500 voucher toward a new mattress. “It’s a great idea. It’s so amazing how [KPRC] can give this money to kids who really need it,” commented Kaitlyn. And thanks to Mattress 1 One, “I won’t have to sleep on those horrible cots in college,” she added. Kaitlyn will be moving on to the University of Oklahoma where she will apply the scholarship money toward tuition and books as she majors in petroleum engineering.

The story will air on KPRC2 on March 30, 2016 during the 6:30 AM segment.
