 15. MISD Multi-Scholarship 

The Mansfield Independent School District (MISD) Community Multi-Scholarship Program was originated in 1979 by Trinity Forge, Inc. and Mansfield State Bank. With the assistance of the high school counseling staff at Mansfield High School, two graduating seniors were awarded funds to pursue a college education. The basis of the program has always remained the same. The main objective has been to award as many scholarships as possible from local community groups to qualifying graduating seniors.

The process now includes all seniors and the counseling staffs at all of the MISD High Schools. It has expanded from two scholarships to over 117 scholarships and all are awarded each year to a student who is a graduating senior in the MISD. The original committee formulated only a few guidelines for the selection procedure, thus allowing the final selection and specific criteria of each donating member/group to remain a vital part of the overall award process.
