On Friday, April 19 members of the Panola College Student Government Association (SGA) presented a check for $30,000 to the Panola College Foundation. The students, under the guidance of Professor Brian Naples, raised the money by organizing the third annual SGA 5K Run that was held on April 6.

 

“The annual 5K Run is a tremendous event that brings students, faculty, staff, and the community together for a worthy cause,” said David Chadwick, Panola College Foundation Chair. “Thanks to the hard work, leadership and organizational skills demonstrated by these students more than $30,000 was raised for the Foundation endowment. In addition, I am also grateful to our Foundation Board members who volunteered to help sign in hundreds of runners, hand out t-shirts, and cheer on the participants. The success of this event assures me that Panola College is doing a great job of preparing students for the future.” The SGA organized its first 5K Run in 2011 after returning from a trip to Austin which was sponsored by the Panola College Foundation. Next year’s SGA 5K Run is scheduled for April 12, 2014.
