Royal ISD students celebrate signings and scholarships

Posted

Two Royal ISD student athletes had reasons to celebrate during signing days hosted by the district during the 2020-21 school year. Combined, Jeremiah Venson and Madelyn Johnson took home more than $100,000 worth of full-ride scholarships.

Venson, who earned a full football scholarship with his outstanding performance on the gridiron, has signed with the University of Texas at Permian Basin. The scholarship is worth an estimated $84,000 and should see Venson through his college career.

Johnson has committed to play softball for Luna Community College in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Her scholarship, worth about $28,000 will support her studies there.

Venson and Johnson follow in the footsteps of 2020 RISD graduate Benjamin Ybarra who received an $80,000 scholarship to Prairie View A&M University where he plays baseball.
