Luncheon aids scholarship

By Julissa Treviño/south news editor

A new scholarship program for TCC students will be announced at this year’s South Campus Women’s History Month Luncheon.

Sponsored by the Women’s History Month Committee, the luncheon will introduce Women’s History Month, encourage students to attend other activities and celebrate women in general, Janine Lund, chair of the Women’s History Month Scholarship Committee and instructor of psychology and human relations, said.

Though the luncheon is an annual event to introduce each year’s events, in March 2007, the committee began plans to fund a scholarship beginning in 2008.

This year’s luncheon sold out within a week, Lund said.

Tickets were $5, and the proceeds went toward funding the scholarship.

More than 55 students, faculty, staff and administration will attend the March 6 luncheon.

Guests will include South Campus President Ernest L. Thomas and Dean of Humanities Judith Gallagher.

The luncheon will be 12:30-1:45 p.m. in SSTU Living Room. The event will include a presentation by speaker Catherine Simpson, local relationship manager at Prudential, and entertainment by cellist Kristin Blair, pianist Julie Blair and vocalist Laveria Bogan.

The new scholarship program will offer a $300 scholarship for studies in the 2008 TCC summer term. 

Students must meet the following requirements: completed six hours by Spring 2008; enrolled in at least six hours for summer 2008; have a minimum 2.5 GPA; submit a copy of an unofficial TCC transcript or other college transcripts; if applicable, submit one letter of recommendation from an instructor, supervisor or other professional; and write a two-page essay about an influential woman in their life.

Deadline for the application is April 14. Students can submit the application to the South Campus Financial Aid Office or to Trish Light (call her at 817-515-4740).

The scholarship must be used at Tarrant County College.
