Jana Kubecka and Lauree Pearson, both of Edna, are recipients of Achievement Scholarship from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Kubecka attends Texas A&M University, majoring in agricultural leadership and Development. Pearson attends University of Texas-San Antonio, majoring in human resource management.

The Achievement Scholarship Program allows current college students already on Show scholarships to apply for an additional $4,000 per semester, for up to four semesters of college, for their junior and senior years.

In some cases, students will be awarded a total of $32,000 in scholarship money from the show, depending on the amount of their original scholarship.

The first set of achievement scholars were 103 students from 28 colleges and universities.
