Texas Tech to Help Raise Scholarship Money for Estacado High School Graduates
June 18, 2009
Texas Tech partners with the Jerry Gray foundation to bring scholarships to Estacado
Texas Tech has partnered with the Jerry Gray Foundation to raise funds for scholarships
to help Estacado High School students attend college.
Gray, an Estacado High School alumnus and four time NFL Pro-Bowler, currently is the
secondary coach for the Washington Redskins.
Through the Jerry Gray Golf Tournament, Lubbock golfers have the opportunity to help
students achieve their ambition of college. Texas Tech will match the money raised
through corporate contributions. The tournament will start at 9 a.m. on June 27 at
Meadowbrook Golf Course.
On June 26 Gray will host a silent and live auction and barbecue dinner open to golfers
and non-golfers. The dinner will be held in the Estacado High School cafeteria and
costs $10 for adults and $2 for children.
The Office of Institutional Diversity handles the scholarships and scholarship receivers
are required to be members of Mentor Tech. These incoming students will increase both
ethnic and economic diversity within Texas Tech.
Mentor Tech focuses on enhancing the quality of the college experience of students
from underrepresented populations. They pair students and mentors together according
to their academic, professional, social and cultural interests, increasing the student’s
chance of success at Texas Tech.
