• 2018 Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Announcement:

    Thank you to everyone that submitted an application for a scholarship from the Waller Area Chamber of Commerce. We received many outstanding applications and equally exceptional recommendations making the selection process very competitive. The process of narrowing down a large applicant pool is a challenging one, especially when it is composed of so many highly qualified candidates. Due to the large amount of applications and in an effort to be non-biased and show no favoritism, the WACC Board formed a committee of six to score each scholarship application. The Selection Committee was comprised of one non-local WACC Board Member, one City of Waller Official and four current or retired educators from outside the community. Each committee member was asked to judge items such as; letter of recommendation, essay ideas, essay organization and grammar, resume, application presentation and overall impression. The scores were all tallied and the top seven applications were awarded a scholarship.

    To qualify for the Waller Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship, the Senior, who plans to pursue higher education or technical studies, must be employed by a Chamber Member, child of a Chamber Member or their parent is employed by a Chamber Member.

  • Welcome!

    We would like to offer you a warm Waller welcome!

    The Waller area encompasses the Waller Independent School District and covers over   320 square miles. Most visitors don't know, but the area includes the communities of   Waller, Hockley, Fields Store, Rosehill, and Pine Island. This geographically diverse area extends into both Harris and Waller counties.
     

    The City of Waller is located about 45 miles west of Houston just down US Hwy 290. About half of the town is in Harris County and the other in Waller County. Out here small town charm is still alive in both the area and it's people.
     

    Next time you are on you way to Austin or Bryan / College Station, stop by and have lunch or take a tour of the area.
