On Monday, November 7th, members of the Kent Companies Team presented Buckner of Midland with a check for $65,000. This money was collected as the proceeds from The Kent Companies Annual Charity Golf Tournament, this past June. The golf tournament was hosted at Odessa County Club and featured more than 200 players, which has been the largest turnout for the tournament. Naturally, with the largest tournament, this is also the largest check that has been presented from this event.
Buckner of Midland provides adoption services and a variety of services for single-parent families in Midland. The Kent Companies is proud to have supported such a great organization over the last few years, through the charity golf tournament.
Three Midland students have been awarded $2,500 for the upcoming Fall semester from The Kent Companies West Texas Strong Memorial Scholarship. The award winners are Joaquin Armendariz, Jayce Heinemann and Andrew Martinez.
Joaquin Armendariz will be attending Texas A&M University and is a Biomedical Sciences major.
Jayce Heinemann is attending the University of Texas Permian Basin and is an Environmental Sciences Major.
Andrew Martinez will be attending Midland College and is a Criminal Justice Major.
