The La Vega Pirates Education Foundation will host a banquet at 6 p.m. May 21 to publicly honor the top 10 percent of academic achievers in the 2015 graduating class. The students will also be asked to name the teacher who most inspired them to succeed, and those teachers will be honored as well.
The event is sponsored by Horace Mann Insurance/James & Rosemary Castellano.
The evening will be catered by Aramark Baylor with decorations supplied by Pendley Party Productions. Larry Pendley, co-owner of Pendley Party Productions and La Vega Alum, said, “I have always had a heart for kids, and we are happy to be able to help with this activity.”
The La Vega Scholars Banquet will be at La Vega High School in the cafeteria, which will be transformed into a lovely dining room.
McLennan Community College, Barnes & Noble Booksellers and Baird Bros. Express are also sponsors for the evening.
Organizers plan to make the banquet an annual event. For more information, including ticket purchases, call the La Vega Pirates Education Foundation at (254) 299-6729.
