The Fort Worth Scottish Rite Foundation’s 65th Grand Annual Banquet was held on Saturday, June 8th at the Fort Worth Masonic Temple. The evening’s festivities began with a reception in the Commandery Asylum to honor recipients of the Foundation’s 2019 scholarships and Anson Jones Award.
Over thirty area students were on hand to receive scholarships awarded by the Foundation. In 2019 fifty $1,500, one $1,000, and two $750 scholarships were awarded to high school seniors. A $1,500 scholarship was awarded to a TCU student enrolled in the Davies School of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
In addition, a charitable donation was made to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in the amount of $15,000.
Our special guest speaker for the evening was our Anson Jones Award recipient Robert L. “Bob” Walker, President and CEO of the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, who gave a short acceptance speech and words of encouragement to our scholarship winners. It was an enjoyable evening for all in attendance.
