Angleton senior Sara Pyle received the Angleton Alumni Association scholarship at Awards Night. The competitive scholarship was open to any Angleton High senior who had a parent or grandparent attend Angleton schools.
Pyle’s parents, David and Tami Ransom Pyle, are both graduates of the Class of 1981. She has been accepted at Texas A&M, where she will major in psychology. “I have wanted to be an Aggie since I was a little kid,” Pyle said. “My mom’s sister went to A&M and she introduced me to the Aggies years ago. This has always been my dream.” She will be majoring in psychology with a pre-med focus as she plans to become a psychiatrist.
Pyle was active in sports throughout high school, playing varsity soccer all four years. She was recently named Most Valuable Player for Southern Brazoria County by The Facts. “I have played soccer since I was four years old,” she said. “I played on select teams starting in the fifth grade and then played at high school. I plan on trying out for the A&M club team.” She also participated in softball and cross country. She was in the band, an officer in the National Honor Society and in the Spanish honor society. She graduated in the top ten percent of her class. “I took a lot of Advanced Placement and dual credit courses while I was in high school,” she said. “I think these courses have got me prepared for college.”
Money for the Alumni Scholarship is raised from donations and from fundraisers sponsored by the Alumni Association. This was the group’s second scholarship and they plan to sponsor one annually.
