The Compadres for Scholarships generously donated $110,000 to the students of Edgewood ISD.

In tow with an oversized check, the group arrived at the regularly scheduled board meeting to present their donation to the EISD school board.

Every year, the organization provides scholarships and community assistance for Edgewood ISD children and their families. They make connections in the community and support clothing, food or shelter needs.

"They present a check for scholarships every year and I've been very impressed with the work this group has done," said Superintendent Dr. Hernandez. "They work tirelessly and effortlessly and help with scholarships for our students who are moving on to big things like higher ed or the workforce."

Thank you to the Compadres! It is through their hard work of hosting various events and fundraisers they raise money to give back to their community. The money remaining after scholarships are awarded goes to campus and district programs including Las Palmas Writing Camps, Winston Robotics, Stafford Safety Patrols and more.
