Jacket Backers is the official athletic booster club for Rockwall High School, and supports the more than 800 student athletes and trainers who proudly wear a Yellowjacket uniform in 17 different sports. The purpose of The Jacket Backers Terry Cookston Memorial Scholarship Fund is to recognize senior students involved in Rockwall ISD-sponsored athletic teams or athletic training who exhibit excellent performance in the class room and a dedication to community service.
The Scholarship Fund is awarded annually to student athletes who meet the eligibility requirements. Applicants are judged in 4 areas: Overall GPA; AP and Pre-AP coursework; community service; and written essay.
Due to a generous contribution from platinum level sponsor, The Jessica Hargis Group, The Jacket Backers presented four student athletes; Rachel Merkel, Abigail Pettett, Alexander Rodriguez and Sean Mason with a scholarship award of $1,250 each.
Jessica Hargis presented the scholarship personally to the recipients. A portion of each home sale in the Rockwall ISD area went to the scholarship. Thank you to those who trusted in TJHG in the sale or purchase of their home in the 2015/2016 school year.
“It’s pretty simple really. I listen to my family’s needs and then help guide them through the processes of buying or selling their home. It’s what I would want for me and my family if I wasn’t knowledgeable of real-estate. I care about the families I help and love to see their happiness. A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, and the way you can instantly envision your life.” states, Jessica Hargis.
