Dollars-for-Scholars drive scheduled
The first annual Dollars-for-Scholars drive, a fund-raising campaign between
the Odessa College Foundation and Permian Basin area retail and service
businesses, is set for Saturday, Aug. 21.
Students who do not qualify for financial aid are being targeted to
receive these funds through scholarships. One hundred percent of the money
raised will go to students enrolled at OC for the Fall 1999 semester.
Three out of four students are in this category, according to Dr. Linda
Ward, executive director of the Odessa College Foundation. "These are students
who do not qualify for federal or state financial aid and must seek private
scholarships or loans in order to attend college," Ward said. "The average
cost for one full-time, in-district Texas student to attend a semester
at OC ranges from $750-$1000," she said.
Odessa Mayor Mike Atkins declared Aug. 21, as Dollars-for-Scholars Day
and presented the OC Foundation with a proclamation.
Business owners will be asked to pledge a pre-determined percentage
of their sales on Aug. 21 or make a one-time pledge to the fund. Ward will
be making personal contacts to retail busineses throughout the Permian
Basin until that date.
Dr. Ward says that the number "21" is significant because the donations
will help OC scholarships reach into the 21st century. "Twenty-one dollars
for the 21st century" is the slogan for the scholarship drive. People will
be asked to give $21 or any multiple of 21 by Aug. 21. Those who participate
will receive a button and business owners will be presented with a certificate
signed by the OC Foundation and State Representative Buddy West.
"Any scholarship drive that makes available funds for education and
training is beneficial to the work force of our community, so all citizens
of the Odessa College service area are welcome to participate," said Ward.
