AEP SWEPCO recently presented a $2,000 gift to Texas A&M University-Texarkana to provide student scholarship support for the 2017-18 academic year.

The AEP SWEPCO Scholarship is awarded to an incoming freshman majoring in electrical engineering, computer science or biology.

“We are excited that AEP SWEPCO has once again chosen to generously fund a student scholarship here at A&M-Texarkana,” said LeAnne Wright, associate vice president for University Advancement. “In the past three years, the AEP SWEPCO Scholarship has made it possible for six students to fulfill their educational goals. We are very grateful to AEP SWEPCO for their commitment to higher education in our region.”

Jennifer Harland, External Affairs manager for AEP SWEPCO, said, “SWEPCO is thrilled to be able to help support students at A&M-Texarkana as they move forward on their pathway to a future career.  Students are very fortunate to have such great educational opportunities here in Texarkana, and assisting these students helps make our region workforce ready.”
