“At a time when we give the best of our ourselves to others, we hope you will consider giving the gift of education that is remembered for a lifetime,” said Leigh B. Goodson, president and CEO of Tulsa Community College. “We can all make a difference. Contributing to a scholarship or endowing a scholarship in someone’s name is a meaningful and lasting way to honor a loved one or support an interest important to you."
The Wish Book features 8 scholarship opportunity gifts starting at $500. Each TCC scholarship supports different student segments. The first scholarship opportunity supports the David Lawless Honors Scholarship, named in honor of the former director of the TCC Honors Program and awarded to an exceptional TCC Honors Scholar. Additional scholarship opportunities support the African-American Student Association Scholarship and Leadership Development, the Disability Resources Pamela McGowan Student Scholarships and Second Chance Scholarships for individuals in prison to pursue a college degree. Scholarships also support first-generation students who show a special kind of courage when they enroll in college without the personal experience of a parent who journeyed there before them.
There is also a special giving opportunity starting at $250 for a one-time gift or a $10 monthly pledge.
“We are committed to making a difference and lasting impact for our community and our students,” said Goodson. “The Wish Book helps reimagine giving the gift of education in supporting our students and helping them reach their education and career goals.”
