The Andrew Webb Scholarship for Leadership

 

Andrew McCue “Drew” Webb was an extraordinary young man who made a significant impact at Houston Christian High School during the 2008-2009 school year, when he joined Head Lacrosse Coach Pete Lehle as an Assistant Coach. Drew played Lacrosse at Episcopal High School for Coach Lehle from 2001-2004. Drew joined Coach Lehle in just the second year of the HCHS lacrosse program, and he played a key role in building the team with his knowledge and passion for the game of lacrosse. Just one year later the team went on to compete in the Texas Division 2 State Championship Tournament.

When Drew passed away suddenly in 2010, the Houston Christian community recognized that he should be remembered because he was outstanding in so many ways.

He was a scholar who graduated first in his high school class. Drew attended and graduated from Cornell University in 2008.

He was an Eagle Scout, and was awarded one of Scouting's highest honors, the Honor Medal, for saving a fellow scout's life while putting his own life at risk while on a canoeing trip on Buffalo Bayou.

He was an amazing lacrosse player and leader on the field, and was one of Texas' first ever two-time High School All Americans. He lettered every year in high school, and played for four years at Cornell University, and each of those years his team was the Ivy League Champion.

Drew also enjoyed writing, and was the author of many columns and articles for his school newspapers in middle school, high school, and college.

Drew was creative, and particularly enjoyed making films, and entered several of his creations in the Ivy Film Festival.

One of the things that people remember the most about Drew was his sense of humor, and he enjoyed making people laugh more than almost anything.

A group of Drew’s friends have created a permanent scholarship fund at Houston Christian High School to remember Drew. Every year HCHS will award one or more Drew Webb Scholarships for Leadership to students in grades 9, 10, 11, and/or 12 who demonstrate special ability and character in any and all of the areas in which Drew excelled: academics, leadership, service to others, athletics, creative writing/journalism, and film production.

Andrew Webb Scholarship Application


'I had a group I ate lunch with called the "Lunch Bunch," which met in Mr. Lister's classroom. Mr. Lister liked to call us "the vultures." Mr. Lister was always available after school for discussion and has been a source of wisdom and advice in my important decisions and biblical questions. He constantly encouraged me to read the Word daily and research my questions to ensure I had the right conclusion and thought process. I learned the value of questioning and striving to be a lifelong learner. I hope to carry the wisdom of Mr. Lister into college and the years after."

"My Houston Christian education has given me so many opportunities far beyond what I could have ever thought or dreamed. The Fine Arts department allowed me to excel not only as a performer, but as a whole person. What stand out to me in my time at HC are the numerous teachers and peers I have met who truly care about me and the individual I am becoming inside and out of the classroom."

Remy Garfield

 

 

"My favorite aspect of HC was the opportunity to be so involved my senior year. I was the co-captain of the cheerleading squad, Student Council public relations officer, a Student Ambassador, a D-group leader, member of the Passport to Lead program, and a member of the Diversity Club. HC has taught me to always strive for what I want and never stop trying."
