Congratulations to Avery Jackson (Class of 2024), who was named as a finalist for the 2023 Annual Davey O’Brien High School Scholarship Award!
The scholarship, underwritten by Higginbotham and Simmons Bank, is presented each year to an exceptional senior student-athlete in North Texas.
Avery was a four-year standout on Hockaday’s varsity volleyball team, which won two SPC titles. Along with numerous All-SPC awards, she was named USA Volleyball’s Female Athlete of the Year and Beach Volleyball Clubs of America Best in Beach in 2023.
Hockaday has one previous winner of the prestigious award, Allison Campfield Taten ’88.
The recipient of this year’s scholarship will be announced on November 14. Recipients of the High School Scholarship Award are chosen on the basis of scholastic achievements, community service, character, leadership, and varsity sports participation. As part of the selection process, the committee will interview all five finalists this week.
