The Texarkana College Foundation has received a $60,000 donation from the Texas Pioneer Foundation.

Part of the donation will establish an endowed scholarship for non-traditional students.  Scholarships from this fund will be available to both vocational and academic students. 

The Texas Pioneer Foundation's president and executive director, Mr. Fred Markham, presented the check to Texarkana College Foundation Board members at a luncheon meeting held in the Patterson Room of the Palmer Memorial Library.

This recent donation is in addition to the $200,000 grant the Texas Pioneer Foundation made to Texarkana College, Northeast Texas Community College, and Kilgore College to support the creation of a consortium to promote student success and college efficiency.

For additional information or to make a donation, please contact Katie Andrus at (903) 823-3125 or katie.andrus@texarkanacollege.edu.
