    SPC Scholarship Gala yields record community support

     LEVELLAND – Recognizing that South Plains College provides its students with “A World of Opportunities” through higher education, community leaders, former students, faculty, staff and friends gathered last Saturday to recognize the importance of scholarships for future SPC students and raised a record $190,000 for that cause at the 16th Annual Scholarship Gala.

    More than 500 people attended the evening that was highlighted by a stellar music performance featuring 14 talented students from the Creative Arts Department. The scholarship gala was hosted by City Bank and the South Plains College Foundation. Great Western Dining served as underwriting partner for the event.

    “I appreciate the community support of our scholarship efforts through our gala activities,” said Dr. Kelvin Sharp, President of South Plains College. “I believe that the scholarship gala is the finest event in Levelland, and I am extremely grateful to the donors who see the value in helping our students reach their goals at South Plains College.”

    During his opening remarks, Dr. Sharp spoke about the continued growth of the college, focusing on the event’s theme “A World of Opportunities.”

    “Tonight is all about scholarships and helping students achieve their dreams,” Dr. Sharp said. “The support you provide is invaluable to South Plains College’s mission to provide quality educational programs that are affordable and accessible. Thank you for helping our students.”

    Sharp provided the audience a progress report of major college accomplishments. “In January, we opened the new cosmetology school in Gentry Square,” Dr. Sharp said. “Later this year, we will open the second new residence hall for young men and a new technology center at our Plainview Center location. Each of these projects is designed to grow the college and create more opportunities for students.

    “Your support does make a difference for SPC students, and we are glad you share our vision to improve each student’s life,” he added.

    For the past 16 years, City Bank Levelland has served as the corporate host of the Scholarship Gala.
