COLDSPRING — Coldspring-Oakhurst High School Senior Harllie Davis has been awarded the 2022 Veterans of Foreign Wars Voice of Democracy scholarship by Cleveland’s VFW Post 1839.
The Voice of Democracy Program has been the VFW’s premier scholarship program since its inception in 1947. Each year students compete at the post, district, state, and national levels by writing and recording an audio essay on an annual patriotic theme. This year’s theme was “America: Where do we go from here?”
Accompanied by COCISD College, Career & Military Readiness Counselor Kathryn Pedigo, Davis recited her award-winning entry at the Post’s awards banquet on Feb. 25, where she was presented with the scholarship.
“Harllie has worked tirelessly since the beginning of her senior year to find financial resources to help fulfill her dream to attend college,” Pedigo said. “I’m very proud of her!”
Davis plans to attend Sam Houston State University in the fall.
