West Texas Strong Memorial Scholarship Program: Honoring the Legacy of the Fallen
In the aftermath of the tragic events that occurred in West Texas on August 31, 2019, the community came together to support one another and begin the healing process. The West Texas Strong Memorial Scholarship Program was created by The Kent Companies to make a lasting impact in the wake of tragedy.
