Dennis and Linda Ramsey, of Hope, Arkansas, recently donated $10,000 to establish the James Edward and Lillian Earline Berry Endowed Scholarship at the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana. The endowment was set up to honor the memory of the parents of Linda Ramsey and will provide financial assistance to a student pursuing a degree or certificate from UAHT.
“Linda’s parents, neither of which graduated from high school, knew the value of an education; and ensured that all three of their children received college degrees. With this endowment, Linda desires to perpetuate the memory of her parents by enhancing the educational opportunities for students wishing to further their education at the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana,” said Dennis Ramsey.
Jill Bobo, Executive Director of the UAHT Foundation, said, “Each scholarship at the college has a story to tell; for the Ramsey’s it is a legacy of learning. Linda’s parents worked hard to provide her with an education. Now the establishment of this endowment will honor her parent’s legacy forever by providing scholarships to allow students to further their education.”
