Prominent Houston developer Howard Hughes awarded 32 scholarships to graduates who attended high schools in Bridgeland and The Woodlands, two of the company’s master-planned communities.

“We are honored to support the higher educational endeavors of these deserving scholars as they embark upon their college aspirations,” Jim Carman, president of Howard Hughes’ Houston region, said in a press release. “Howard Hughes has continued our tradition of awarding scholarships to high school graduates within our communities. Through our HHCares initiative, we look forward to continuing that momentum as future graduates emerge each year.”

General scholarships, as well as the Howard Hughes Executive Club scholarships, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. scholarships and the Gerald D. Irons, Sr. scholarships, were awarded to 32 graduating high schoolers from Bridgeland High School, The John Cooper School, Oak Ridge High School, Tomball High School, Waller High School, Willis High School, The Woodlands Christian Academy, The Woodlands College Park High School and The Woodlands High School.

Since the founding of Howard Hughes’ educational funding initiative in the 1980s, the developer has awarded nearly 470 scholarships to local students in pursuit of higher education.

“We are proud to invest in the bright futures of tomorrow’s leaders,” Carman added.
