REPRESENTATIVE ERIC JOHNSON FILES RESOLUTION TO RECOGNIZE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
AUSTIN, TX – State Representative Eric Johnson (Dallas) has filed HCR 40, which will designate a day to honor Texas students who have been awarded academic scholarships to attend college.
"While I want to congratulate those Texans who signed their letters of intent to play football yesterday, I believe it is equally important to recognize those students who have worked hard off the field," said Representative Johnson. "With this resolution, I hope to encourage communities across the state to hold ceremonies where these fine young Texans can get the recognition that they deserve."
HCR 40 would designate the Saturday before NCAA national signing day as Texas Academic College Scholarship Day.
Eric Johnson represents District 100, which includes parts of Dallas and Mesquite, in the Texas House of Representatives.
