AUSTIN – State Representative Trent Ashby (R-Lufkin) announced last week that his office will begin accepting applications for the Texas Armed Services Scholarship Program (TASSP) from qualifying students living in House District 57.
The Texas Armed Services Scholarship Program was created by the Texas Legislature to encourage students to become members of the Texas Army National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, the Texas State Guard, the United States Coast Guard, the United States Merchant Marine, or to become commissioned officers in any branch of the armed services of the United States. Every year, each State Representative may appoint one student to receive a scholarship award.
“It’s always an honor to nominate a student from the district who plans to dedicate their career to the United States armed services,” said Ashby. “This scholarship helps the next generation of brave men and women as they begin the next chapter of their career and represents a small token of our appreciation for their commitment to service.”
