South Plains College Scholarship Gala Yields Record Support

SPC Facebook

The annual scholarship gala for a local college has yielded record community support.

More than $180,000 was raised at last Saturday’s South Plains College 15th Annual Scholarship Gala.

More than 500 people attended the event, highlighted by a country music performance from the faculty and students of the Creative Arts Department.

“The turnout and support from the community for South Plains College was just tremendous,” said Dr. Kelvin Sharp, president of South Plains College. “The success of the gala highlights the overwhelming generosity of this community, our friends, and our alumni, and the support they have for South Plains College.”

The event also included the introduction of the 2013 recipients of the SPC Foundation’s Pacesetter Awards, recognizing exemplary philanthropy and support of the Foundation.

This year’s honorees include Pat and Annette Sykora of Smith South Plains Ford, Lincoln, and Dodge; the Paul and Verna Musslewhite family of Levelland; the Spencer and Irene Ellis family of Levelland, and United Supermarkets.

Seventy-one businesses and individuals served as sponsors, and provided 58 items offered in the live and silent auctions, which netted $90,500.
