The University of Texas at Tyler Longview University Center is proud to announce the establishment of the Frances B. Ross Honorary Scholarship. The fund was established to provide financial assistance to students enrolled at the Longview campus. Preference will be given to applicants who have resided in Panola County, Texas for no less than five years, and can provide proof of such residency.
“At 96 years of age Mrs. Ross is still a strong woman and a fighter who plans to live well past her 100th birthday. She has a generous heart and a strong desire to help others achieve their dreams.
It is my great honor to thank her for this gift on behalf of our students, faculty and staff.” said Dr. Van Patterson, Director, UT Tyler Longview University Center. “Financial issues can be a major impediment to students achieving their educational goals. Scholarships such as this will help ensure that assistance will be available when it is needed most.”
