A&M-C Hopkins County Reception Endows Scholarship


By Brent Lyday

Sulphur Springs – Texas A&M University-Commerce Hopkins County alumni and friends recently endowed the Hopkins County Alumni Scholarship Endowment thanks to the many pledges and commitments during the Hopkins County Alumni reception in Sulphur Springs. The scholarship reached its $10,000 goal and will soon be available to A&M-Commerce Hopkins County students.

"As alumni, we are interested in seeing the university grow," said Wayne Galyean, A&M-Commerce Foundation Board member. "From an administration standpoint it is crucial for this scholarship to grow, and assist deserving students in their education."

More than 100 alumni attended the reception to meet Dr. Dan R. Jones, A&M-Commerce president, reconnect with fellow Lions, discover what is new on campus, and support future A&M-Commerce students.

"Having the attendance we had in Sulphur Springs illustrates the abundance of love, appreciation and pride our alumni have for their alma mater," said Randy VanDeven, A&M-Commerce vice president for advancement. "The tremendous show of support sets a wonderful example for other communities to follow. Our alumni and friends that are kind enough to provide their financial support at any level are those that truly make a difference for our students."
