    SPC Foundation announces establishment of new agriculture scholarship

    LEVELLAND – The South Plains College Foundation is proud to announce the establishment of the Jim and Ramona Davis Honorary Ag Products Inc. Scholarship to assist SPC students.

    Ronny and Suanne Alexander of Levelland have contributed $10,000 to the SPC Foundation to establish the endowment fund. This scholarship will assist a Hockley County high school graduate who majors in an agriculture-related field. Alexander is a member of the SPC Board of Regents.

    The Alexanders have chosen to participate in a special endowment challenge that is funded as part of a grant the college has received from the U.S. Department of Education Strengthening Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program. Their contribution will be matched with Title V grant funds, essentially doubling the endowment to $20,000.

    “Our boys attended South Plains College, and they received scholarships,” said Suanne. “It was a great blessing for us and now we are able to give back that same blessing to someone else through this scholarship. We are very pro South Plains College.”

    According to Julie Gerstenberger, director of development at South Plains College, this gift is another example of strong local support for scholarships. “The Alexander family has a rich history of association with and support for SPC. The college has served their family well and they, in turn, believe the college plays an important role in our community and in higher education in general. We appreciate their thoughtful generosity in providing a scholarship funds for future students.”

    The scholarship was established to honor Suanne’s parents, Jim and Ramona Davis. Davis started working in the agriculture supply business when it was Leon Ransom Farm and Ranch Store. He became partners in the business and, in 1972, he purchased it and renamed it Ag Products, Inc. His wife Ramona worked at the company and retired nearly six years ago.

    Alexander started working for Ag Products Inc. in 1977. A year later, he and his high school sweetheart, Suanne Davis, were married. She started working at the company in 1980. In 2004,

    the Alexanders purchased the business from the Davises. Ag Products celebrated its 40th anniversary as a business March 1, at which time the Alexanders announced the establishment of the scholarship.

    “I wanted to do something to honor them for starting Ag Products,” Alexander said. “South Plains College has been there for my boys and I knew if I ever got in a position where I could do something, I would definitely give something back. I hope my boys will do the same thing whenever they get in financial shape, too.”

    Gerstenberger said the Title V challenge endowment grant funds provide a means for increasing the endowment value of a private gift to the Foundation. There is $50,000 available from the grant program for academic year 2012-2013 to build up scholarship endowment funds in certain fields.

    For more information about establishing a scholarship at SPC or to make a donation to this scholarship, contact the Office of Development, (806) 716-2020.
