2019 Scholarship Winners

ISVA Community Service Scholarship Winners

The most exciting time of the year for the Indian Springs Village Association (ISVA) is when we award $1000 scholarships to deserving graduating seniors. One essential purpose of the ISVA, is to raise funds to honor those students who have demonstrated an immense dedication to community service and citizenship.

For 2019, we received many incredible applications and were reminded of the intelligence, persistence, and kindness our students possess. The scholarship committee, like most years, had a difficult time selecting our winners. ISVA congratulates Abby Inbusch, Bernadette Pavlich, Alex Alley, and Matthew Kaiser. 

Abigail (Abby) Inbusch, from The John Cooper School, is a two-term South Montgomery County YMCA Board Member who raised a tremendous amount of money to help less fortunate kids and families in our community. She intends to major in Business & Economics at Southern Methodist University and eventually develop strategies to prevent and manage negative effects on the economy.

Bernadette Pavlich, from The Woodlands High School, has befriended and cared for the sick and elderly at the Regent Care Nursing Home since she was a small child. She also spent time in our community helping at food banks, teaching children and assisting in a non-profit business.  To continue her love of helping people and the community, she intends to major in Occupational Therapy at Texas Woman’s University.

Alexander (Alex) Alley, from The Woodlands High School, is an active Eagle Scout and has managed service projects and volunteered wherever there was need. From helping numerous families after Hurricane Harvey to improving the lives of children at the Interfaith Daycare, Alex has made his community a better place.  He intends to major in Marketing at Texas A&M University and continue serving the world around him. 

Matthew Kaiser, from The Woodlands College Park High School, is an active Eagle Scout, a National Charity Roundtable (NCR) Volunteer and a Congressional Award Silver Medal Recipient. The Salvation Army, Interfaith, Robotics Team, Chamber of Commerce and Soil Moisture Active Passive program have all benefited from Matthew’s service. Once completing his degree in Accounting or Finance from Texas A&M University, Matthew intends to continue volunteering his time in the community .

ISVA would like to thank all the applicants and their parents for being such an integral part of what makes Indian Springs so special. 

Holiday Lighting Winners

Indian Springs Village Association 2018 Holiday Lighting Winners

This year’s judges focused on homes and areas that have not had the opportunity to win in prior years and had displayed a significant amount of effort and commitment that was involved in this year’s displays. 

This year’s Best House is 14 Golden Place, in Idlewood.  This home which is owned and decorated by Dan and Lori Parr, has over 60 separate Christmas trees on display in what Dan described as “Santa’s Christmas tree forest”. Dan and Lori said their display required over 50 hours to assemble and several storage units.

This year’s Best Neighborhood was given to the cul-de-sac on Lansend.  This was a new display which involved choregraphing the lights at three houses and the cul-de-sac.  Joe & Kimberly White, who live at 34 Lansend, started developing the lighting plans in August, with his neighbors Brian Ivey and Rob Haberkamp.

ISVA Donates to Local Schools

The Indian Springs Village Association is pleased to once again support our local schools.  Funds raised at village events, such as the Taste of the Village, are put back into our community through scholarships to our Indian Springs high school seniors and donations to our neighborhood schools.  A $750 donation was made to Galatas Elementary School for the purchase of fiction and non-fiction books for their kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms.  Galatas Principal Denae Wilker writes, “ These valuable instructional materials will enhance student learning and encourage a love of reading that will last a life time.”  An additional $750 donation was made to Glen Loch Elementary.  Indian Springs Village Association board member Michael Saucier presented the check to the Glen Loch PTO in February.

After understanding the need for funding to support STEM learning in Robotics, the Indian Springs Village Association was proud to contribute $500 to both the Mitchell Intermediate and Wilkerson Intermediate Robotics programs.  Mitchell science teacher and robotics coach Lori LeBouef writes, “We would like to expand our competition teams, but more importantly, provide robots for each science classroom to allow all Mitchell students the opportunity to develop STEM skills.”  Wilkerson science teacher and robotics coach Wendy Park plans to purchase a Lego Mindstorms kit, saying that, “it will benefit the students in the area of science, technology, and engineering.  We are working to find ways to showcase and share the materials now and in the future!”  We appreciate all the wonderful teachers and staff who work so hard for our students.
