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.
