2021 Scholarship awarded to Pravalika Manchi

My name is Pravalika Manchi and in the Fall of 2021, I’ll be attending Mays Business School at Texas A&M University to major in Business Honors and Finance.

Throughout high school, I was heavily involved in Business Professionals of America (BPA), Leo Club, and NHS. Collaborating with others, creating multimedia business presentations, and learning the ins and outs of a business in high school was fascinating and thus ignited my passion for the business field. After college, I hope to pursue my MBA and become an accounting professor!

Outside of school, I enjoy dancing, trying new recipes in the kitchen, and taking roadtrips with my family. Engaging in volunteerism the past four years has allowed me to blossom my interest in service and being compassionate towards others. Due to the impact service has had in my life, I plan on continuing my servantship at the multitude of service organizations at Texas A&M University! I am so grateful for the Richard Wayne Pollard Foundation for contributing to my education and aspiration of becoming a trusted member of the business field!
