18 deserving ETX students get help with college funds

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A welcome hand for a college education Thursday in Longview, as a benefactor helps offset the cost of going for a degree.

$2,000 each to deserving college students, were doled out at the regular AMBUCS meeting at Johnny Case's in Longview

Through corporate and individual donations, it was the largest amount AMBUCS had ever given out in the ten year program--$36,000 to 18 East Texas students from Panola and Kilgore Junior Colleges.

Tommy Knight with Longview AMBUCS says, "Primarily it's need. We have some tough luck stories and these are people that really, really need the money, we give a thousand dollars in the fall and a thousand dollars in the spring."
