Career Goal: Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences

Brittany sings in the Spring Woods High School Varsity Choir, serves on Student Council and is a member of the National Honor Society. She played on the SWHS volleyball team and was an Academic All District Softball Member. Having never played softball before, she tried out as a freshman and, one year later, she was a major player on the Varsity team.

Head softball coach Allison Hayworth, describes her well: “Brittany is a very patient and supportive teammate. She is hard working and selfless. She goes above and beyond to make herself better, as well as her team.”

Brittany loves meteorology. She says, “By earning my education through hard work, I plan to start a career in the broadcasting sector of meteorology, and hopefully build my way up to my dream position of being the chief meteorologist of Channel 13 in Houston.” We hope to all be tuned in to Channel 13 when that day comes.

This fall, she enters Texas A&M University to study meteorology and atmospheric sciences.

2013 Rachel Pendray Scholarship Winner
A former student at Spring Woods High School, Rachel Pendray attended Sam Houston State University, where she was involved with cheerleading and she pursued the study of nursing.

In the reading used to present her scholarship, the following was stated: “There were many ways in which Rachel made herself known – she was involved with swim team and diving, was active in her church, and was a friend to everyone she met. She did not know a stranger and was an inspiration to many. Rachel was always laughing and smiling, giving support to those who might be down, and she left a permanent memory of a beautiful girl whose shining face and loving heart touched our lives forever . . . and whose smile was occasionally mixed with a crazy silly grin, pushed up nose and tongue sticking out . 

“While Rachel’s life ended too soon, her short time with us made a tremendous impact on all whose path she crossed. We are excited to present three worthy students the chance to begin their college career while carrying on Rachel’s memory and working towards a future that would make Rachel proud. We ask our honorees to please accept this donation towards your future in honor of a wonderful young lady – study hard, smile a lot and represent Rachel in a way that will make her and her family and friends honored to be a part of your future.”
