Texas Tech to help raise scholarship money for Estacado high school graduates

LUBBOCK TX (KCBD)-Texas Tech has partnered with the Jerry Gray Foundation to raise funds for scholarships to help Estacado High School students attend college.

Gray, an Estacado High School alumnus and four time NFL Pro-Bowler, currently is the secondary coach for the Washington Redskins.

Through the Jerry Gray Golf Tournament, Lubbock golfers have the opportunity to help students achieve their ambition of college. Texas Tech will match the money raised through corporate contributions. The tournament will start at 9 a.m. on June 27 at Meadowbrook Golf Course.

On June 26 Gray will host a silent and live auction and barbecue dinner open to golfers and non-golfers. The dinner will be held in the Estacado High School cafeteria and costs $10 for adults and $2 for children.

The Office of Institutional Diversity handles the scholarships and scholarship receivers are required to be members of Mentor Tech. These incoming students will increase both ethnic and economic diversity within Texas Tech.

Mentor Tech focuses on enhancing the quality of the college experience of students from underrepresented populations. They pair students and mentors together according to their academic, professional, social and cultural interests, increasing the student's chance of success at Texas Tech.

Register for the golf tournament online at http://www.jerrygrayfoundation.org/ or call 806-781-8310.
