Clay shoot helps college-bound students

The Annual Kyle Hohmann Memorial Scholarship Clay Shoot
kicks off Saturday at Llano County Clay Busters in Llano.
The event raises scholarship money for three of Llano’s college-bound students.
Debbie Coats and her husband, Pernell, organized the fundraiser five years ago in memory of their nephew, Kyle, who was killed in a car accident.
All proceeds go towards three scholarships worth $1 thousand each, given to three seniors at Llano High School. Since the fundraiser began, Coats said they have awarded scholarships to 13 students.
"We always try to raise about $3,000,” Coats said. "But our goal every year is to increase the amount we raise.”
Students must fill out a standard scholarship application
forms to be eligible, Coats said, and then write an essay about why he or she
is most deserving.
"We sit down and decide as a family which students to give the scholarship to,” she said. "It’s always a really tough decision because there are so many good kids.”
