To bring more young men of color into the teaching workforce, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas and the City’s MLK Commission are creating two scholarships for students at Texas A&M San Antonio.  

The two scholarships are a result of the city’s commitment to President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative.  My Brother’s Keeper aims to connect men of color to role models and opportunities. District 2 City Councilman Alan Warrick says both scholarships will make it possible for men of color to become teachers.

On Wednesday the Texas A&M San Antonio Foundation honored major supporters of the university with its Dream Maker Award.

The school honored a number of benefactors for their help in funding the education of some local students who otherwise could not have secured tuition assistance.

University President Dr. Maria Hernandez-Ferrier, said one of those students is Savannah Villanueva, who had a great need for tuition assistance, but other scholarships would not consider her application because of her age.

The state’s prepaid college tuition program known as the Texas Tuition Promise Fund began its open enrollment this month.

This is the sixth year for the fund that gives parents the opportunity to lock in tomorrow's college tuition costs at Texas public colleges and universities at today's prices.

Families can purchase one of three types of  prepaid "tuition units" that are later applied toward undergraduate tuition and fees. Prices are based on 2013-14 academic year costs for the state’s public colleges.
