#MatchMade Scholarship Contest: Meet Austin

Today we’re highlighting our last #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalist –Austin! Austin just started classes at North Central Texas College, Corinth Campus after graduating from Lake Dallas High School earlier this year.

Austin’s video was chosen as a finalist because it sweetly showcases how Austin, an only child of a single mother, always wanted a father. After meeting the new man in his mother’s life way back in 2003, he knew it was “Dad at first sight” and their family began to grow!
