I love a small community that makes everyone feel at home. Uvalde is a community that has a little bit of everything. Your favorite restaurant, small owned business from your locals, great school, great diversity of people, southern hospitality. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to be born and raised. We are also very close to everyone favorite famous river, The frio! Which is great for the summer. We have our own 6 forum theater which is a great place to go on the weekend with your family! My experience here has been amazing and when I graduate from college I plan to come back to my small town and raise a family. One thing that I would like to change if I could is to keep my small town small. Uvalde has grown over the years and traffic and commute time has increased.

But I would enjoy to have this scholarship so I can fulfill my dream and be able to have a job to support a family. Thank you for the opportunity

I'm currently a resident of Uvalde and have lived here my entire life. I love the town and everything it has to offer. There are many activities it has to offer on a daily basis. However, my one suggestion is offering children more activities to participate in. A few years ago the bowling alley closed, taking away something many kids, teens, and even adults enjoyed doing. Though now all the children have is a movie theater to go to.
The perfect place to live if you love trees and the simple things in life. Uvalde is a beautiful city where you can get everything you need and never leave. The community is amazing with its festivals and events open to the public. There are so many things to do, yet you can also kick back and relax. There are a lot of cultures here and everyone enjoys it. Uvalde is like a dream that you don't know you're living.
