West Rusk Students Say They Are Glad to be at ETBU

Posted: Updated:


   9 students from the West Rusk ISD have decided to attend East Texas Baptist University despite the fact that the guarantee of a full ride scholarship never happened. In May, Houston filmmaker Nicholas Sturghill's representative announced that every student who graduated from West Rusk, and went to ETBU would have a full ride scholarship.  In July, that money never came leaving 16 students who applied scrambling.  Alan Wallace is one of those students.  He says even though he has had to pay a little out of pocket, things have worked.

"I never really knew ETBU existed, but I love it here"

The school and the students say that they have not heard from Sturghill since July.
