With the help of community sponsors, The Coalition presented scholarships to six Angelina County Drug-Free All Stars. The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County, funded by a grant from TxDOT, are high school seniors in Angelina County who serve as role models in the community throughout the year. Six outstanding Drug-Free All Stars were selected for their commitment to promoting a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle to their community and their involvement in the program throughout the year. The 2021-2022 Drug-Free All Stars went above and beyond to help promote a drug-free lifestyle to their community using many different resources to share their message, including social media posts, press conferences, videos, school presentations and more. The six Drug-Free All Stars selected to receive a scholarship were Reagan Crow, graduate of Lufkin High School; Rosina Camarillo, graduate of Lufkin High School; Kaitlyn Lea, graduate of Lufkin High School; Leonardo Carreon, graduate of Diboll High School; Teresita Santoyo, graduate of Central High School; and Valeria Jacobo, graduate of Central High School. Thank you to the community partners who made these scholarships possible. Community donors include: Abeldt’s Pharmacy; Southside Bank; Southwood Drive Animal Clinic; Morgan Insurance/Bartlett, Baggett, & Shands; KSWP/KAVX; Contractor’s Supplies, Inc.; Whataburger/GVCS; East Texas Asphalt; Timber Country Real Estate; and an anonymous donor. We are proud of accomplishments of the 2021-2022 Drug-Free All Stars and wish them luck in all their future endeavors.
