(BROWNWOOD) – Gregory Dodds, President and CEO of TexasBank of Brownwood, presented five TSTC students with $1,000 scholarships on Monday, Sept. 21.
The bank has donated $5,000 annually to TSTC for several years. This year the bank asked that the money be disbursed at the rate of $1,000 each to five worthy Brownwood students.
The five students selected, Joshua Barron, Irene Holmes, Dawn Pinkard, Mariolis Ragland and Laura Weaver, were selected based on merit and financial need.
Joshua Barron, a fifth semester Software & Business Accounting student, said he has plans for the scholarship.
“It will help with books, tuition, gas back and forth to campus, and program materials,” Barron said.
TSTC in West Texas Provost Eliska Smith said these kinds of gifts are something that really helps the students.
“Scholarships like these not only help the students with tuition, but also with unexpected expenses that they may need help covering to stay in school,” Smith said. “We’re thankful to Mr. Dodds and TexasBank of Brownwood for supporting TSTC and our students.”
Dodds serves as a Board Member for The TSTC Foundation.
