"I am writing to offer my sincere thanks for selecting me to receive the Texas Exes Scholarship for the United Kingdom Chapter. I am truly honoured to receive this scholarship and I am determined to justify your choice by fully embracing university life in Austin and striving for academic excellence."

James, pictured here at the Scholarship Awards Dinner, went to school in Hampton, Middlesex, UK and is majoring in History at UT. His $1000 award raised was from donations at UKTE events.
