Scholarship Helps Pay For School In Permian Basin
With this year's Graduating class getting ready to wrap things up and call High School a memory--thoughts turn to August and September and the next step to getting that degree... COLLEGE... "How am I going to pay for this?". We understand--and The Ride For Change can help. Applications are now being accepted to help a minority student in West Texas. If you're a minority student living within the listening area of any of our stations: Lonestar 92.3, B93, Mix 97.9, 99.9 KBAT, or Fox Sports 1510--you're eligible to apply.
The Ride For Change started last year and is a motorcycle ride all across the plains of Texas--raising awareness of social injustice and accepting donations for minority scholarships. In 2020, 11 cities were visited on the inaugural ride and scholarships were set up in each of those cities-including right here in West Texas--as awareness was raised about social injustice. The deadline for entry is approaching quickly--March 30th 2021. So--download the application right now, fill it out and send it back to us by that date. The selection committee will choose the recipient--and it might be you!
Ride For Change is happening this year for 2021 May 3rd thru the 15th, and will be passing thru the Midland-Odessa area on May 3rd. Details will be posted soon on more ways you can help support this program so please check back often. In the mean time, donations are always accepted here.
We know how supportive and generous everyone is in the Permian Basin of our neighbors-especially those who are trying to do good things with their lives and better themselves through education. Thank you in advance for your support of this wonderful program!
