Jacket Backers Making a Difference in Student’s Lives
The Rockwall Jacket Backer Student Scholarship Program provides financial support to graduating student athletes who meet the eligibility requirements as defined by the association. The purpose of the Student Scholarship Fund is to recognize senior students currently involved in Rockwall ISD-sponsored athletic teams and athletic training who exhibit excellent performance in the class room and dedication to community service. Recently, the Jacket Backers received a thoughtful email from a Rockwall High School Alumni and recipient of a 2014 scholarship.
Rebecca Voth, a former RHS Varsity Swimmer utilized her scholarship from the Jacket Backers while she was at Baylor University. The funds helped her with book costs and her cap and gown for graduation. Ms. Voth will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with concentrations in Political Science, International Studies, Spanish and Philosophy. She is contemplating either teaching English in Mexico on a Fulbright Scholarship or attending Pepperdine Law School on a full ride scholarship. She gives credit to the Jacket Backers. “None of these opportunities I have would have been possible without the generous support of groups like Jacket Backers that allowed me to pursue the incredible education I received at Baylor and graduate debt-free. Stories like this one, demonstrate how the Jacket Backers organization makes a difference in the lives of RHS students.?
The Jacket Backer Booster Club is a non-profit association formed to maximize fundraising efforts for Rockwall High School sports, and other charitable activities that promote the development of good character, high morale, maximum effort, and the highest standards of sportsmanship, competitive spirit, pride, and community service.
