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 like the fact that Uvalde is not a huge town, but it is also not a town with only one building. It has a fairly good balance between small and big. I wish there would be new places to go, such as new attractions and places to have fun. I also wish there was new shopping centers or stores.
Uvalde is an OK place to live. It is growing, and new businesses are opening up. I think in the future it will be great. My husband and I are likely going to move though, because the schools here are just not great, and job opportunities are fairly limited.
