Carr academic applications accepted at ASU

Applications from high school seniors are being accepted by Angelo State University for Carr Academic Scholarships for 2001-2002.

Over 300 Carr Academic Scholarships for 2001-2002, ranging in value from $1,500 to $6,000, are available to qualified high school seniors. During the current year nearly 1,000 students from throughout Texas and the nation, as well as numerous foreign countries, are attending Angelo State University on Carr Academic Scholarships.

In order to be eligible, students must normally be in the top 15 percent of their high school class, and present a combined math and verbal score of 1140 or higher on the SAT1 or a composite score of 25 or higher on the Enhanced ACT Assessment. Financial need is also a criterion for selection.

Supported by a growing $49 million trust established by the late Robert G. and Nora K. Carr of San Angelo, the undergraduate scholarships may be renewed annually by the University for students who maintain the required academic record and personal standards.

The priority deadline for submitting applications and all supporting materials is Feb. 1, 2001, although completed applications from outstanding students may be considered up until June 1, 2001, to the extent that funds are still available.

Application materials and information regarding the Carr Academic Scholarships can be obtained by contacting or writing to: Financial Aid Office, San Angelo State University, Box 11015, ASU Station, San Angelo, Tx. 76909 or call 915-942-2246 or toll free 1-800-933-6299. Additional information and the application form are available through the Angelo State University web site on the Internet at

Fitting in child's physical schedule

Time is precious and finding time to raise healthy, active kids can seem like a challenge. But according to Dr. Pat Vehrs, exercise physiologist and director of the Texas Children's Hospital Wellness Center in Houston, encouraging activity in kids is not so much a matter of time as a matter of commitment.

"Parents who are trying to instill healthy, active lifestyles for their kids need to be committed to that idea," he said. "It only takes about 30 to 40 minutes a day for parents to encourage physical activity in their kids."

As a guideline, kids should be physically active as a part of school, play and chores at least five days a week, said Vehrs. In addition, vigorous physical activity should be encouraged at least two to three days a week. Parents can help by being flexible, providing resources, planning noncompetitive activities, serving healthy foods and becoming actively involved.
