Senior Scholarship Giveaway


Week 18 Scholarship Winners: Denait Bereketab & Bryan Najera




A Brighter Future for Local Students

This year marks the third annual KPRC Channel 2 Scholarship Giveaway. We are partnering with Channel 2 KPRC this year to help 20 high school students achieve their dreams of attending college. Every week for 5 months we will join KPRC to make a deserving student's dreams come true with a $2,500 scholarship to be used towards a college of their choice. In total, $50,000 will be granted to local students to help them obtain a higher education! 

Each scholarship recipient has been selected based on their hard work and determination to achieve their goals. Denait Bereketab and Bryan Najera, our eighteenth scholarship recipients, are no exception. Denait is ranked 3rd in her class and is a member of the JROTC. She plans to attend Texas A&M to study Biology in order pursue her dreams of becoming a Pediatric Doctor. Meanwhile, Bryan is ranked 1st in his class and is Co-Editor in Chief of his school newspaper. He plans to study Biochemistry in college and is set to attend Rice University next year. These students represent the future and we could not be more proud to help them on their road to success. 

Community Involvement

We owe the success of our small local business to the people of the Greater Houston Area and we strive to give back to our community as much as possible.  With every purchase, we are thrilled to not only help you get your best night’s sleep, but to also grow our opportunities to support local charities and Houstonians in need.  In addition to the KPRC Channel 2 Scholarship Giveaway, we are also involved in several other Houston causes. One example is our annual sponsorship of the Houston Children’s Charity’s A Better Night’s Sleep program which provides beds for the 20,000 children in Houston who do not have a place of their own to sleep.  Every mattress we sell brings us one step closer to helping another local family achieve their dreams.  Please visit or call our showroom at 713.341.6252 to learn more about how you can get involved.
