The remarks will likely take place between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. central time, an official with his office said. Watch it live on CSPAN here.
The students were among several area high school seniors recently named TCU Community Scholars. Here's a Star-Telegram report on the 7 winners from Trimble Tech and five winners from Sam Houston High School in Arlington. And a news release from Fort Worth ISD on TCU scholarship winners.
