Chancellor Chris Thomason of UACCH-Texarkana met with Julia Mobley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Commercial National Bank of Texarkana, to sign a gift agreement to establish the first annual scholarship for the UACCH-Texarkana campus. Mobley, who also funds a scholarship on the Hope campus, was pleased to support the new campus and believes in the UACCH mission at Texarkana.
Mobley shared with the Chancellor, “Commercial National Bank is a proud supporter of this community college and the University of Arkansas. Education is the pathway to a better life. Our community benefits when we have an educated populous. Part of a good education is learning to make critical decisions and I believe UACCH-Texarkana can teach this skill. Commercial National Bank is proud to offer this annual scholarship.”
The Commercial National Bank scholarship will be awarded to a student who is a current Miller or Bowie County resident and enrolled as a full-time student at UACCH-Texarkana. The applicant must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. The annual scholarship will provide $500 in the fall and $500 in the spring scholarship, beginning in the spring of 2013.
The UACCH Foundation appreciates this support to establish an annual scholarship for students on the UACCH-Texarkana campus. Scholarships help students overcome financial hurdles of a higher education that often prohibits many from pursuing their educational dreams.
