2021-2022 Birmingham Scholars

  • Twenty seniors have been named Birmingham Scholars for the 2021-2022 school year and were officially recognized at a banquet held in their honor on April 14, 2022. Culled from the top 10 percent of their classes, the students were selected based on their SAT and ACT scores, class ranking, and good moral character. The students also completed an autobiography and personal interview with three judges representing superintendents from Dallas, Collin and Rockwall counties. Additionally, in order to qualify for the scholarship, students must have received all of their grades from a Wylie ISD high school.

    The Miss Pearl Birmingham Scholarship fund was established in 1947 by T.F. Birmingham to comply with a request by his sister, Pearl, who died in 1946. In her will, she left 1,000 shares of common stock in Standard Oil Company of Ohio to support an annual scholarship for an outstanding Wylie graduate. Today the fund supports twenty-one scholarships valued from $5,000 to $7,500.
