A&M-Texarkana to Hold Check Presentation Ceremony
TEXARKANA, Texas – Texas A&M University-Texarkana received a $50,000 donation from The Texas Pioneer Foundation during a check presentation ceremony on Thursday, July 1. The ceremony, held in the Lois & Cary Patterson Student Center, marked the beginning of the university’s anniversary celebration and fundraising campaign. A&M-Texarkana celebrates three milestones in 2021, 50 years as an institution of higher education, 25 years as a Texas A&M University System member, and ten years of breaking new ground.
Fred Markham, Executive Director of The Texas Pioneer Foundation, was on hand to present the check for $50,000 to the university to jump-start the university’s anniversary campaign. To celebrate a half-century in higher education, the university hopes to raise a half-million dollars for scholarship funds.
“We are so grateful to have The Texas Pioneer Foundation as a partner in higher education,” said A&M-Texarkana President Dr. Emily Cutrer. “This generous gift is a wonderful way to launch our anniversary fundraising campaign and will go directly towards scholarships to benefit A&M-Texarkana students.”
