The Texarkana Noon Lions Club recently gave $5,340 to Texarkana College Foundation for student scholarships.
The funds are proceeds from a gun raffle the club held to support the foundation.
"We love raising money for Texarkana College students," Lions Club President Doug Barnette stated in a press release. "In our mind, there is no more worthy recipient."
Katie Andrus, director of the TC Foundation, said the gift will have a significant impact on students.
"We are so appreciative of the Lion's Club generous donation and their commitment to higher education," she said. "The Lions have made education a priority when it comes to supporting our community through their fundraising efforts. Their support provides greater opportunities for our students."
The TC Foundation's mission is to enhance the overall reputation of Texarkana College, to provide external resources to fund college priorities and to create opportunities for the college to build partnerships with alumni, friends, donors, corporations and foundations. The Foundation's goal is to provide TC students with affordable and accessible opportunities in higher education.
