“Unfinished Business” Campaign raises nearly $44,000 in student-athlete scholarship support.

COMMERCE – Texas A&M University-Commerce and Lion Athletics are proud to announce that we nearly raised $44,000 since the launch of the Unfinished Business Campaign on May 1. The campaign, which will fund scholarships for Spring 2020 seniors who intend to return for their Spring 2021 season afforded by NCAA legislation, has a goal of $55,000. Donors who wish to help achieve this overall goal can still do so by visiting the giving page HERE. 

“Inspiring is the keyword that comes to mind when I think of the support our Lion family has shown towards our senior softball, golf, and track and field student-athletes,” said Director of Athletics Tim McMurray. “These gifts will have a DIRECT impact on these seniors returning next year and will indirectly lift the entire Lion athletics program.” 

Over five weeks, the Lion family was able to reach over 79% of the overall goal from 79 donor households. Thank you to our donors, who made a gift of over $100 towards this important initiative! 

THANK YOU From Your Lion Family and Student-Athletes!

 “All I can say is THANK YOU to the 79 households who decided to make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes,” said Senior Associate Athletics Director for Championship Resources Taylor Phelps. “There is no doubt these are challenging times for many, but to see numerous alumni, former student-athletes, community members, parents, faculty, staff, and coaches choose to give back reinforces how strong our Lion Pride is. It would be a disservice to our student-athletes if I did not stress there is still time to join this cause and help us reach our overall goal of $55,000 in support of our senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short by COVID-19.”
