Two Odem Students Receive Gates Millennium Scholarships

Posted: Updated:
ODEM (Kiii News) -

A couple of Odem students have been selected to be part of the prestigious Gates Millennium Scholars -- Anthony Serrano and Marisol Rocha of Odem High School.

It's quite the honor. Only 1,000 students from around the country are awarded the Gates Millennium Scholarship each year. So for Odem High School to have two students receive the honor is quite extraordinary.

Serrano said he will use his scholarship to go to the University of Texas, and Rocha said she will attend college at University of Texas at Kingsville.
