In a collaborative effort faculty and staff of University High School are working with the Waco ISD Education Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship fund in honor of Nancy A. Price. Price served as a math teacher and coach at Waco ISD for almost 15 years. UHS Coach Sa’lisa Harrell stated, “Her absence has left a huge hole in the hearts of those who knew her. We are looking for the best way to ensure her legacy lives on here at University.”

Coach Price came to Waco ISD is August of 1998. A military veteran, Price taught two years at University Middle, four years at Cesar Chavez Middle, and was in her ninth year of teaching at University High School. During the 2011-12 school year, Coach Price was named University High’s Outstanding Teacher. When asked for a quote for the Waco ISD OutstandingTeacher recognition in 2011 she stated, “Investing the time to teach our young people is an investment in a stronger future.”

The Nancy A. Price Scholarship for University High students will be awarded to a minimum of two UHS seniors demonstrating outstanding academic achievement, community awareness and leadership. Scholarship applications will be made available to University High seniors each year. The deadline for this year’s application is Wednesday, May 15, 2013.  Students are asked to write an essay expressing their personal experiences in community service and the importance of giving back.
