Today Mike and Sheila Abusaab handed Dr. Cheryl Sparks, President of Howard College, a check for $3,000 to fund the Sonic Scholarships at Howard College located in Big Spring. This scholarship awards $1,000 to three students who will be able to continue their education at Howard College.
According to Dr. Sparks, recipients of the scholarships are awarded to students who has the desire to be thankful for the funds that they will be receiving, and who will also uphold what the Abusaabs are about. There is a long history of interest in education from both Mike and Sheila Abusaab. The Abusaabs have had opportunities afforded to them in the past and they would like to do the same for others.
Sheila stated, “We believe in Howard College and the education that they provide for the students. In over 30 years, we’ve seen a lot of successes and we want to continue that process. We have a very good relationship Dr. Sparks and with Howard College, but nothing makes us happier than to see a student complete his education at Howard College or at least get a good start with the numerous programs that Howard College provides.”
The Abusaabs have been donating money for the Sonic Scholarships for over 30 years.
