Karen Denney

Scholarship Lady of Central Texas

Since 2014, I have been assisting high school students in navigating their journey from high school to college and earned my name as the “scholarship lady” because most of my time has been spent helping students with scholarships to pay for college. Over the years I have utilized several modalities, provided one-on-one service to hundreds of students and their parents from Killeen ISD, presented to large crowds of students & parents, conducted professional development for teachers and counselors, coordinated student workshops, and even held webinars for students and counselors. Topics range from careers to college and financial aid.

What People Are Saying

“Karen Denney is the leading expert in Central Texas for helping students obtain admission and funding to college. Her knowledge and work is second to none in helping students successfully attend college.”

- Dr. Russell Porterfield - Principal for KISD Career Center

"Mrs. Denney is very passionate, personable, and thorough.  Her kindness puts her audience at ease to ask their very specific questions, and she even shares her own children’s college journey. Because of her vast and current knowledge and firsthand experience in scholarship advising, Mrs. Denney is known in Killeen ISD as the Scholarship Lady. I have learned so much from Mrs. Denney and to say that I highly recommend her is an understatement.  Mrs. Denney would be a prized and valued asset to students, parents, and staff in any school district."


- Yvonne Cox – High School Counselor

“Mrs. Denney has been a valuable resource for our family.  She is knowledgeable, approachable and kind.  She has been our son’s go to person for questions on admissions & scholarships.  As a result, he has been accepted into his dream school in the his desired major with 30 hours of college credit and several scholarships earned. She teaches the importance of meaningful community service and gave him clear tips on writing essays that showcase his personality and goals.  We would recommend Mrs. Denney without hesitation.”

- Kim Bridenstine – Parent

“For an introverted person like myself, it’s really hard to find support and guidance from others. Attending the Killeen ISD Career Center, I had the help that every senior needed. Mrs. Denney has done a great job reaching out to seniors for completing their FAFSAs and announcing information about scholarships. I am really thankful that I got the change to meet Mrs. Denney because if it wasn’t for her announcements, I would be stressing in college over what to do and how to pay for my college expenses. From her guidance and support, I have won several scholarships that I have always wanted to receive. Thank you so much Mrs. Denney.”


- Misantrealla Branish  - Student

"The support provided by the Scholarship Lady is unmatched by none.  I recently began the college journey as a parent, and it can be overwhelming.  Mrs. Denney was always available to answer any questions I had.  I also teach at the high school where Mrs. Denney worked and our students relied on her for everything from SAT, ACT, ASVAB, TSI, scholarships just to name a few. 

I’m highly impressed by not only the extensive resources, but her method of communication to students.  Students from each grade level were provided Remind101 updates, a monthly newsletter of scholarships due that month was published and her scholarship list is organized by month due and includes all needed information such as, requirements, amount of scholarship, eligibility, etc.  Her knowledge and support is priceless."

- Melissa Nix – Teacher
