Senior Mallory Wilcox received a scholarship from The University of Texas at Austin worth $48,000 this past weekend. She was surprised with the scholarship while she was competing at a speech and debate tournament at Veterans Memorial High School. Here is what she had to say.

How did you feel when they handed you the scholarship?

“When they gave me the scholarship I was running 30 minutes late to an LD round, so I felt like I was running late to an LD round. I felt like I was gonna throw up because I hadn’t even been accepted into UT and had no idea what was going on for the first 5 minutes, I was just happy that my grandma was there it still hasn’t really sunk in that I’m one of the very few people that UT has offered a full ride to.”

Was UT your first choice, and what do you plan on going to school for?

A&M was my first choice, but I wanna go for international relations and global studies, I’m not sure what it is but I heard it helps people in law school. Like a lot. I would like to thank the academy.
