LIBERTY February 26, 2018 - The directors of the Taylor-Odom Foundation are pleased to announce that it is awarding the sum of $112,000 in college scholarships for the 2019 calendar year. The recipients are seven Liberty County students graduating from area high schools in May.

The recipients are:

Devin Ewing, Dayton $20000
Bailey Luke, Hull Daisetta $20000
Bryce McQueary, Hardin $20000

Twenty-six students from Dayton, Hardin, Hull-Daisetta, Liberty and Tarkington submitted applications which
were reviewed by the Taylor-Odom Foundation directors before final selections were made. The purpose of
the Foundation is to provide financial aid to graduating high school seniors who might not otherwise be able
to afford advanced education. Eligible students must reside in Liberty County and graduate from either
Hardin, Liberty, Dayton, Hull-Daisetta or Tarkington High School. The amount of the scholarships varies
based upon a student’s pursuit of a four-year degree, a two-year degree or vocational/technical certification
from accredited institutions in the State of Texas. Evaluations are also made with respect to the applicant’s
character, general attitude, initiative, leadership and potential for achievement.
This is the second year for the granting of scholarships by the Taylor-Odom Foundation.

The Foundation was founded to honor two parents, Davey Lea Taylor Odom and
Douglas E. “Doc” Odom, who instilled in their children that knowledge through higher
education and hard work are keys to a good life.
