Tom Landry Classic Awards Scholarships

 

After legendary Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry’s passing in 2000, the “Tom Landry Classic” was created to honor his legacy. For 17 years now, “the Classic” has had strong ties to North Texas high school football programs and awarded scholarships to the participating schools’ student-athletes. Although the games are played in the fall, the culmination of the Tom Landry Classic is in the spring when a banquet is held to honor scholarship winners.

 

On April 24, Ebby Halliday Realtors presented its 2016-2017 scholarship winner, Courtney Reid, at the Classic’s annual banquet. It marked the 17th time in as many years that Ebby Halliday has supported the Tom Landry Classic.

 

Scholarship applicants must exhibit Landry-like characteristics and are selected on the basis of three criteria: academic excellence, community service and leadership.

 

“Tom Landry was a man of faith and family, which he valued even more than his highly successful 29-year coaching career, and scholarship recipients like Courtney truly excel in balancing those qualities,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of Ebby Halliday Realtors.

 

Courtney, who will graduate from Lovejoy High School in late May, is a member of the Lovejoy Band and has completed more than 100 hours of community service at The Samaritan Inn and the Allen Animal Shelter while in high school. She is an AP Scholar with Distinction, a member of the National Honor Society, a writer for her school’s newspaper, and a member of the speech and debate team. She will attend Texas A&M University and major in Forensic and Investigative Sciences.

 

Courtney received a commemorative crystal award from Ms. Burleson at the scholarship banquet.

 

“This event — more specifically, this banquet — allows us to pass on the wonderful legacy of Tom Landry to a whole new generation of young people,” says Tom Landry Classic Executive Director Kris Cumnock.

 

“Ebby Halliday Realtors was founded on three principles of service: service to our clients, service to our industry and service to our community,” says Burleson. “We are very proud to support the Tom Landry Classic scholarship program and to be part of an organization that places service to others at the forefront of everything we do.”

After legendary Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry’s passing in 2000, the “Tom Landry Classic” was created to honor his legacy. For 14 years now, “the Classic” has had strong ties to Dallas-Fort Worth-area high school football programs and awarded scholarships to the schools’ student-athletes.

 

Recently, Ebby Halliday Realtors presented its 2013-2014 scholarship winner, Conner Rambin, at the Classic’s annual banquet. It marked the 14th time in as many years that the Ebby Halliday Companies has supported the Tom Landry Classic.

 

Scholarship applicants must exhibit Landry-like characteristics and are selected on the basis of three criteria: academic excellence, community service and leadership.

 

“Tom Landry was a man of faith and family, which he valued even more than his highly successful 29-year coaching career, and scholarship recipients like Conner truly excel in balancing those qualities,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies.

 

Conner has a 4.22 GPA at Highland Park High School and is the Principal Chair in the Highlander Band, for which he plays trombone.
