SAGU distributes 10k to hispanic church
Vice President for Advancement Irby Mcknight said, "Although the estate was received by the Southwestern Foundation, it is not our money. We are simply distributing the estate to the appropriate establishments." He continued, "People who donate their estates and trusts to us can rely on us to distribute their wishes accurately. Therefore leaving a lasting legacy that helps sustain and grow SAGU. It is truly a blessing."
Templo Cristo Para Todos is a bilingual Assembly of God church in the Texas Louisiana Hispanic District. The Church was established in 1984 and is Pastored by Lazarus Gonzales and his wife Evangelina. The Church celebrates its 29th anniversary in August.
Pastor Gonzales said, "It came as such a wonderful surprise when Dr. Mcknight presented us with the gift. We are so very thankful for this contribution."
Along with the church donation, the donor gave over $175,000 to SAGU as a scholarship to be used as financial aid to African American, Latin American and Asian descent students attending SAGU.
