Jackson State to host Skillet Junction scholarship fundraiser
JACKSON, Tenn. – The Jackson State Community College Foundation announced fundraising for scholarships at a special event this month.
The fundraiser, named Tacos, Tecates & Scholarships, will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 at Skillet Junction.
You can enjoy street tacos, drinks, and a dance party, as a salsa dance instructor will be on hand.
The goal is to help raise funds for students who may not be eligible to receive traditional scholarships or grants, as well as those who need additional funds to complete their studies. The money will go towards the cost of textbooks, housing and more.
“We wanted to host an event where we can all get together, enjoy made-to-order street tacos, drinks, and break out our dancing shoes to salsa dance,” said JSCC Foundation Director Lindsey Tritt. “We invite the community to join us for an eventful evening as we raise funds to positively impact the lives of our students.”
A press release indicates that in 2021, the JSCC Foundation was able to provide over $32,000 in scholarships and student aid. The foundation hopes to increase this number with the addition of this new event.
