In the 67 years since its inception, the primary objective of the Algodón Club has been to support and promote the cotton industry of the Rio Grande Valley. Over the years, one of the leading ways the Algodón Club has shown its encouragement is by awarding scholarships to outstanding Valley students who demonstrate academic achievement, are involved in extra-curricular activities, and who plan to pursue an agriculture related career. Through the giving of these scholarships, the Algodón Club provides for the cotton industry's most valuable resource - tomorrow’s agribusiness leaders


This year, it is with sincere gratitude for your generous contributions that we were able to raise and award $31,000 in scholarships. The Algodón Club takes great pride and pleasure in presenting these funds to the following distinguished graduating seniors of the Class of 2020.
