MCALLEN, TX — South Texas College (STC) is pleased to announce continued community support of their Valley Scholars Program having most recently received an Executive Sponsorship from Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance (DHR) for their 8th Annual “A Night with the Stars” fundraiser. This important event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Corinthian Banquet & Special Event Center located in Mission, TX.
The Valley Scholars Program was established in 1997 to recognize and promote academic excellence by providing financial assistance, academic support services, mentoring, and leadership development. The Program provides a foundation that empowers students to excel in their academic achievements and to become leaders that will make significant contributions to their communities.
The Valley Scholars Program recruits STC students who graduated within the top 10% of their high school class and offers support services in scholarships, advisement, registration, and participation in the STC Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa International Honors Society.
Since the Valley Scholars Program’s inception, more than 630 participants matriculated to either STC’s own bachelor programs or transferred to other four-year colleges and universities. Net proceeds from “A Night with the Stars” will benefit STC’s Valley Scholars Program Scholarships. For more information call 956.872.1952 or visit nightwithstars.southtexascollege.edu.
