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.

For more information call the institutional advancement office at 335-6665.
