WBU Lubbock Sets Date for its Scholarship Gala

LUBBOCK – Wayland Baptist University in Lubbock has scheduled its 16th annual Lubbock Lights Scholarship Gala for Tuesday, May 10 at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center. A silent auction will take place at 6 p.m. with the dinner and program at 7 p.m. All proceeds will benefit student scholarships at WBU-Lubbock.

This year’s Gala will feature success stories from a Wayland student and alumna.
