Last week the Kenedy Chamber attended the Kenedy High School Scholarship Awards Banquet. The Kenedy Chamber of Commerce Tourism & Visitor Center Scholarship was handed out to the following recipients: James Lopez, Yvette Almanza, Sheldon Hons, Cameron Ruiz and Austin Lawrence. We gladly awarded each of these individuals with $1000 to go towards their college education.
