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.
This scholarship program is designed to provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors or college students who are residents of Midland or Odessa and will be full-time students of a college or vocational technical program for the upcoming fall semester. The program is open to students from all backgrounds and areas of study, with the goal of supporting those who show academic promise, leadership potential, and a commitment to their communities.
By participating in the West Texas Strong Memorial Scholarship Program, students not only receive financial support for their education but also become part of a community dedicated to honoring the legacy of those who lost their lives. They become ambassadors of hope, carrying forward the spirit of resilience and strength that defines West Texas.
To apply for the West Texas Strong Memorial Scholarship Program, students must submit an application no later than May 25, 2023. Three students will be awarded $2,500. For more information and to apply, visit here.
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.
Congratulations to all our award winners. The next round of scholarships will go out for the Fall of 2023 and the application will open in April of 2023.
