Navarro College set for fundraiser

Corsicana — Once again Navarro College and the Navarro College Foundation have joined hands to provide Navarro College supporters the opportunity to participate in its annual fundraiser.

This year’s event, “Evening of Dreams… Celebrating Education” is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Cook Education Center. Guests at the fun-filled, black tie gala will enjoy fine dining, socializing, and participating in both a live and a silent auction.  

Through the generosity of its donors and supporters, the Navarro College Foundation awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships during 2012-2013 academic year. In addition, the Foundation has funded instructional equipment for various departments across campus. Scholarship recipients have expressed their gratitude for the financial support they have received.

One scholarship recipient commented, “I believe in myself and I want to thank you for believing in me as well. With this scholarship, I can now concentrate on my studies and make my dreams come true.” Another stated, “Thank you for the scholarship I received. I was starting to wonder where I was going to find the money to pay my tuition. Miracles really do happen.”

Navarro County and the surrounding areas are fortunate to have a first class college and a foundation to provide financial assistance to students. The giving spirit of the community has enabled the college and the foundation to help students realize their dreams for a brighter future. The foundation and the college are grateful for past supporters and look forward to presenting this year’s “Evening of Dreams.”

Advanced reservations are requested by Monday, Feb. 10. For additional information regarding the event or sponsorships, please call 903-875-7591.
