San Antonio, Texas – May 30, 2016 – Kayla Alvarado, a senior basketball player from Antonian Prep and an AQUAS scholar-athlete, has committed to attend Schreiner University in Kerrville, Texas next year where she will be able to play her sport at the collegiate level. Kayla will be pursuing her degree with a major in biology.

Capt. Charles Schreiner, a former Texas Ranger and Hill country rancher founded Schreiner in 1923. Originally a boys’ school, it became coeducational in 1971. A junior college in those years. Schreiner strengthened its collegiate program and became a four-year institution in 1981 and graduated their first baccalaureate class three years later; and is now considered one of the finest liberal arts colleges in the Western United States. Kayla feels that this is where she can get the education to fulfill her dream of helping others after receiving the degree, which will lead her to becoming a professional in the medical career field.
The college competes in intercollegiate sports at the Division-III level; thus, no athletic scholarships were available. Alvarado’s financial package is based on her academics, FAFSA, and need-based awards. She maintained a 3.53 GPA while at Antonian Prep and her 21 ACT score assures her NCAA eligibility.AQUAS is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is identifying underserved high school athletes who have demonstrated high academic performance. These students may not have received much national visibility for a number of reasons; thus college coaches are not aware of their skills. AQUAS overcomes that problem as it puts these selected students in front of collegiate athletic departments across the nation until the right academic and athletic matches are found and some financial support from the gaining university has been secured.

“This is a very hard-working young lady,” commented AQUAS CEO Colonel Hugh Mulligan. “Over the two years that we have been working with Kayla, she has always been proactive, responsive, strong willed and determined to get to college. While basketball is her passion, don’t be surprised if you see her name mentioned in the softball scorebook at Schreiner as this multi-talented athlete is also an outstanding softball player.”
