We are extremely happy to report that the initial goal of raising $10,000 to begin Brandon's Legacy Endowment was reached in April, 2007. Donations are, of course, still being gratefully accepted - and needed!
Jo Ann Price, Brandon's mother, reports:
"The Odessa College Foundation will now begin to invest this and all the interest earned will go to deserving art students who attend Odessa College. One of Brandon's mentor's, Barry Phillips, the younger, will have a great deal of input into who is deserving of the scholarship awards. I will update all of you as to when the 1st award will be given. It may be 6 months or a year from now. The college wants to have some sort of ceremony at that time, which will also give us some publicity in the newspaper here. Perhaps that will help to add to the endowment.
Thanks to all of you for being such a good friend to Brandon.
Brandon's legacy will live on and I think that's what we all want to happen."
Please contribute to Brandon's Legacy Endowment Art Scholarship Fund.
