HENDERSON COUNTY–The Henderson County Black History Committee received a generous donation from the First State Bank for the 2020 Scholarship Fund.
The focus of the HCBHC is to give well deserving high school seniors who want to attend college in Henderson County scholarships.
Scholarships are given to all ethnic groups and we try to give the students encouragement; to let them know that knowledge is power. HCBHC holds fundraisers throughout the month of February and throughout the year.
The scholarship recipients will be honored at a special banquet set for Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020 at the Church of the Living God, PGT Life Center in Athens at 7 p.m. Featured speaker for the event will be WFAA Channel 8 Sports Commentator Dale Hansen.
As the saying goes, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” If you wish to help with our scholarship fund you can mail your donation to Henderson County Black History Committee, P. O. Box 5, Athens, Texas 75751. Make checks or money orders to: HCBHC.
