Scholarship bucks generated in Texas

December 27, 2012

Recently more than 250 golfers competed in a celebrity golf tournament that scrounged up $140,000 that will be set aside from financial aid for college at Lone Star College. 

According to YourHoustonNews, the event took place at the Woodlands Country Club Palmer and Tournament Courses.

"The Lone Star College Foundation Golf Tournament is about building community, connecting with our donors, and supporting students," Darcy Mingoia, executive director the LSC Foundation, told the news source. "We are grateful for this support and the commitment of our community friends to our students."

Meanwhile, other scholarships for college based in Texas don't come from charity golf, but out-of-state philanthropists. For example, Texas A&M recently received $50,000 in money for college from a student originally hailing from Maysville, Mo. This donation was made by Isabelle McDonough Bram of Missouri, whose brother, now deceased, attended Texas A&M and is said to have enjoyed it quite a bit.

In yet another instance of financial aid for school being provided in Texas, the Texas Dow Employees Credit Union announced that it has doled out a grand total of $25,000 to new college students based on their academic skills and leadership.
