Texas A&M University-Kingsville received $45,000 from the South Texas Higher Education Foundation. The funds will be used for student scholarships across all disciplines for the 2007-08 academic year.

The check was presented to Randy Hughes, vice president for institutional advancement; Felipe Leal, interim director of financial aid; and Jay Zambrano, director of development. Joyce Bynum, local representative on the board of the South Texas Higher Education Foundation, presented the check. Alberto “Adam” Gonzalez, along with Myra Elizondo-Martinez, administrative servicing representatives for the foundation, also assisted in the presentation. 

“The foundation gives these funds to the university with no strings attached as long as it is for the benefit of needy South Texas  students,” Gonzalez said.
           
The South Texas Higher Education Foundation is a non-profit corporation established in 2000 to provide higher education assistance funds for needy students in South Texas. The foundation distributes to other non-profit organizations and college and university financial aid offices. The money is then given to students who have exhausted their scholarships, work-study, state and federal grants and loans and family contributions and still need help paying for college expenses.
