DVHS senior Kaitlyn Serra

A Del Valle High School senior received the Dove Springs Proud Organization scholarship on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Dove Springs Recreation Center.

Kaitlyn A. Serra, senior DVHS Belle Dancer, will accept a $500 scholarship that will be applied to tuition, books or school-related materials.

“I’m extremely grateful and happy for receiving the Dove Springs Proud Organization scholarship because it will help me get in the right track in college,” Serra said.

Serra will graduate in May 2018 and will pursue a degree in psychology either at Texas State University or Texas A&M. She is interested in pursuing studies in the mental health field.

In 10 years, Serra said she would like to be a psychologist because she wants to help people and make a difference.
