This prestigious award was designed to recognize Texas high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of community service, leadership and personal accomplishments.

To be considered for this award a student must be nominated by their high school principal. Applicants were selected based on their overall grade point average, pursuit of advanced diploma, and evidence of exceptional service to the community. Each student nominee completed an application that included reference letters, a personal goals essay and documentation of their contribution to the community. From this state-wide group of outstanding leaders, ONLY five were chosen statewide to receive the Teens Serving Texas Award and monetary unrestricted scholarship.

As a winner of the TASSP Teens Serving Texas Award, Carolyn will be invited to the TASSP Summer Workshop in Austin on June 13, 2019, to receive her award in front of approximately 2,100 TASSP principals.

Carolyn is the daughter of Bill and Stephanie Jess of Lake Jackson. She is highly involved in National Honor Society and Student Council, along with AP and Dual Credit classes. She has used her love of community service and helping the environment in a wide range of areas including US Fish and Wildlife Junior Naturalists, Houston Zoo blogger for endangered species, NOAA Sea Turtle Patrol, HEB green bag initiative grant, campus water bottle fill station grant, Gulf Coast Blood Center and Keep Lake Jackson Beautiful.

She was recently awarded a $3200 scholarship as a National Semifinalist for the National Association of Secondary School Principals for her contributions to the campus and community through National Honor Society projects and her academic success.

Carolyn will attend either Baylor University or Sam Houston State University and major in environmental science. She intends to have a career in the conservation department of a zoo so she can continue to be an advocate for wildlife conservation.
