by BIZ Magazine

Ternium, a leading steel production company in Latin America and the United States, demonstrates its commitment to helping communities through actions that have a positive impact, such as rewarding high school students for their academic achievements thus facilitating them to carry on their education.

The Ternium Academic Merit Award is granted to high school seniors that meet several requirements based on academic performance, attendance and commitment to the educational process. These outstanding high school seniors, who met a GPA eligibility requirement, verified attendance requirement and had no discipline infractions were eligible to apply for the monetary award. They submitted an essay as well as verification of enrollment in a post-secondary school or university in order to apply.

This year Talik Johnson, Hannah Pham, Lacie Johnson and Leslie Johnson received the scholarships for their remarkable performance and commitment to their education.

“Education is an essential pillar for young people to find new and better opportunities for their personal and professional life. It was an honor to present the Ternium Academic Merit Award to these four outstanding high school graduates. Ternium continues to fulfill its goal of giving back to the community,” said Bianca Rachlin from Human Resources at Ternium.

Talik Johnson, a Captain Shreve High School graduate and scholarship beneficiary said, “I will now plan to attend the University of Louisiana Lafayette, and I plan to mayor in chemical engineering with the concentration in biomedical engineering. My plans after college is to work for a pharmaceutical company and my goal is to find a cure for all types of cancer and epilepsy. I just want to say thank you so much to Ternium. This is a blessing and it will definitely not go to waste.”

Ternium has granted 33 scholarships within the program Academic Merit Awards since 2014 when it launched.
