Roton wins first student grant from QISD Foundation

The Quinlan ISD Education Foundation is proud to announce the first recipient of $1,000 for this school year’s student enrichment grant program. There is a total of $2,000 available to currently enrolled students each year. $1,000 is still up for grabs.

Ford High School sophomore Tyler Roton applied for a student enrichment grant to be able to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders that will take place this coming summer. He is the son of Jerry and Brandy Roton. Tyler is an outstanding student at Ford High School who has maintained straight A’s, is involved in the FHS Band, ACE Karate program where he has earned a black belt and is on target to enter in the free QISD Associate’s Degree program.

“Tyler is bright, energetic, compassionate, and genuinely well rounded. He has done well in all of his courses. Academics are critical to him, and Tyler is very self-motivated and self-directed in making sure he devotes ample time to his outside and social interests, including attaining the rank of Eagle Scout,” said Ford High School Counselor Laurie Blair.
