STC’s Annual “A Night with the Stars” Scholarship Gala set for Oct. 12

STC celebrates 20 years of academic excellence with Valley Scholars

South Texas College will host its 12th Annual “A Night with the Stars” scholarship fundraiser on Oct. 12. The theme “Celebrating 20 Years of Academic Excellence” will recognize the Pioneers of the Valley Scholars Program who have exemplified a tireless commitment to Valley Scholars students.

In partnership with sponsors who have been consistently dedicated over the years to the advancement of education among our youth, South Texas College has enabled hundreds of students to reach for the stars and achieve their dreams.

The annual fundraising event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Corinthian Banquet & Special Event Center located at 1516 E. Expressway 83 in Mission. The star-studded evening celebrates supporters of education and successful alumni from the Valley Scholars Program.

Tickets are on sale now at $50 per person.  Net proceeds from the event benefit Valley Scholars Program scholarships.

“We are very proud of the Valley Scholars Program and are thankful for the support we receive from the community,” said Jessica S. Garcia, Coordinator of the Valley Scholars Program at STC. “Through the help of our sponsors, we are able to provide up to $1,000 annually to high performing students from Hidalgo and Starr counties.  We are looking forward to celebrating their generosity at A Night with the Stars as we celebrate 20 Years of Academic Excellence.”

Since its inception in 1997, the Valley Scholars Program has provided educational opportunities, leadership development, and scholarships to more than 830 students.  The Program accepted the 21st Class of Valley Scholars this Fall 2017.
