NCTC Angels in the Infield
When a bus accident claimed the lives of four North Central Texas College softball players in 2014, an outpouring of support for the team and the school came from all around the nation. One way that support was shown was through donations to a scholarship fund that was established to honor the four young women who lost their lives. The NCTC Angels in the Infield Scholarship honors Brooke Deckard, Jaiden Pelton, Meagan Richardson, and Katelynn Woodlee. Preference for the scholarship is given to members of the NCTC Lady Lion’s Softball Team who are in good academic standing at the college and are recommended for the scholarship by the NCTC Athletic Department. A minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA must be maintained. Funds may be used to cover the cost of attendance at NCTC including tuition, fees, books, room and board, and meal plans.
