Victoria Lions Club contributes $3,000 for student scholarships

Greg Spears, left, Victoria Lions Club president, presents Courtney Middleton Sides, University of Houston-Victoria senior director of corporate and foundation relations, with a $3,000 check during Thursday’s Lions Club meeting. The money will be used for two $1,500 UHV student scholarships. The Victoria Lions Club initially donated $600 to UHV in 2007. Every year since, the 92-year-old club has made a gift to the university for scholarships.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend and Harris counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. Since its founding in 1973, UHV has provided students with a quality university education from excellent faculty at an affordable price.
