A local couple is set to make a substantial donation to Texarkana College.

At a check presentation on Monday, October 3, Sal and Aven Williamson will give $25,000 to the Texarkana College Foundation. The donation will fund a new endowed scholarship to support TC’s Presidential Scholarship program.

The presentation will take place at 2PM in the Nelson Administration Building Lobby on the TC campus at 2500 N. Robison Road. The Presidential Scholarship allows top graduating high school seniors to attend TC tuition-free for two years.

Both Sal and Aven Williamson are graduates of the college, and Aven was a member of the Bulldogs' football team. Aven also serves on the board of the Texarkana College Foundation and has been instrumental in helping build the college's alumni program.
