Grace House Ministries taking Pure Truth Scholarship applications

Grace House Ministries is taking applications for the Pure Truth Scholarship, which awards $1,000 college scholarships to deserving high school seniors.

Grace House Ministries is committed to educating members of the community about making healthy choices and, as an expression of that desire, created the Pure Truth Scholarship five years ago to recognize outstanding students who strive to be positive role models and influence their peers to do the same.

Lacey Wert, the Aledo High School graduate who received the 2016 Pure Truth Scholarship, said she feels equipped to take on this new journey.

"In being supported by this scholarship funded by members of my own community, I feel equipped to take on this new journey,” she said. “It’s great to have an amazing support system and I couldn’t be more grateful."

Wert is among the nine Parker County students who have received Pure Truth scholarships in the four years Grace House Ministries has offered them. Thanks to the generous support of the community, Grace House is looking forward to its fifth year of helping local students pay for college.
