Senior Scholarship Winner: Fatmata Sesay

Congratulations Fatmata Sesay, from Westbury High School!

For the third year in a row, Texas Mattress Makers is a proud sponsor of KPRC’s Senior Scholarship Program!

Fatmata Sesay is a Senior at Westbury High School and this week’s Senior Scholarship Program winner! Fatmata is ranked 10th in her class and values her education above all else. Our partners at KPRC helped us surprise her earlier this week to award her with a scholarship. On top of her accomplishments inside the classroom, Fatmata is also a PAIR Mentor – a program that helps refugee students just like her. Fatmata and her family are originally from Gambia. Attending school was a constant struggle for Fatmata prior to moving to the United States. She hopes to study medicine and become a doctor so she can help others. Fatmata has been accepted into Bryn Mawr College where she will attend next Fall Semester. We are honored to support students as amazing as Fatmata and we can’t wait to see what she accomplishes in the future!

Be sure to catch this program and keep up with all of our winners every Wednesday during the 6AM and 11AM news on KPRC, Channel 2!

 

All winners have been nominated by their school. If you are interested in learning more about the selection process, you can contact KPRC here.
