A couple of Woodrow Wilson High School students made news over the weekend, thanks to the annual Field Scovell Scholarship announcements. Zach Krimm, a Texas Tech sophomore and Woodrow grad, is a prior Scovell winner who won his second Catfish Montgomery Scholarship, while current Woodrow senior and this fall’s University of Texas freshman Macy Crabb won one of nine Scovell Scholarships given to current high school seniors, according to the DMN. The winners will officially receive their $3,000 scholarships Monday at a Hyatt Regency Dallas awards reception. The scholarhips were first given in 1991 and are named after the longtime Cotton Bowl titan Field Scovell, who headed the bowl’s team selection committee for almost 40 years until his death in 1992. Last week, Crabb won one of the State Fair’s annual scholarships for DISD students; that scholarship was worth $5,000, capping a pretty productive seven-day period for Crabb.
