East Texas Baptist University freshman Alisa Hamilton is a young lady that has overcome many obstacles in her life that many will never face in a lifetime. Her drive to graduate from Bellaire High School and attend college was recognized by the Houston Independent School District.
Houston ISD Superintendent Terry Grier made a surprise visit to her high school last May to present the dedicated and hardworking Hamilton with a $10,000 college scholarship. The award was given to her, who was selected by Dr. Grier, because of her drive to succeed academically and be involved on campus despite significant personal challenges.
A few weeks ago, HISD Communications Senior/Producer Debra Sanchez-Treese was on the ETBU campus to check on how Hamilton is doing in her first semester on the Hilltop.
