WACU raises more than $5,000 for scholarships


For Immediate Release
September 24, 1999

The Women for Abilene Christian University raised more than $5,000 in the "Walk with Money" fund raising event Sept. 18.

Students and many other friends of ACU who participated in the event collected donations and joined Dr. Royce Money, ACU president, and his wife Pam, for their walk around campus.

The money raised goes to scholarships for ACU students. According to Ann Young, program chair for the national committee of WACU, each year WACU gives 10 scholarships to students.

Scholarships are awarded to students majoring in biblical studies because they don't qualify for the Texas Equalization Grant and to women from various departments on campus.

The money raised from Saturday's event contributes to the WACU Endowed Fund. The goal for the fund is $1 million, Young said.

This is the ninth year the Money's have walked with WACU. The event began in 1991 when Dr. Money took office. Pam Money currently serves as the national board president for WACU.
