Howard Payne University recently received a donation of $25,000 in scholarship funds from the James and Dorothy Doss Foundation, Inc., given through TexasBank.

Greg Dodds, TexasBank president and chief executive officer, made the presentation to Dr. Cory Hines, HPU president.

“Howard Payne University is very grateful for the generosity of the Doss Foundation and TexasBank,” said Dr. Hines. “Greg Dodds and the rest of our friends at TexasBank are deeply committed to the success of our area, and this contribution to help area students attend HPU is evidence of that.”

“TexasBank is proud of its contributions toward helping those in our local communities pursue higher education,” said Dodds. “We are even more proud of the partnership with Howard Payne and the role that it continues to play in providing a quality college education based on a solid spiritual foundation.
