Release Date: October 8, 2009

LUBBOCK – Students and employees of Wayland Baptist University’s Lubbock Campus gathered Thursday, Oct. 8, to honor a special local company who has invested around $250,000 in students over the past five years.

A reception was held at 10 a.m. to honor Betenbough Homes, a Lubbock-based homebuilder who contributes funds annually to provide scholarships for students working in ministry in churches or church-related fields.

During the event, ministry director Holly Betenbough presented the campus with a $20,000 check as their latest gift for students. Students chosen for the grants typically receive a set amount for four terms while they pursue their degree and a career in ministry. Betenbough has been committed to advancing the kingdom of God and believes the scholarships are a great way to help future and current ministers build skills for ministry.

A few of the students currently receiving the Betenbough scholarships attended the reception to say thanks to the West Texas homebuilder in person. They included Randy Hust, Darren Weaver, Rebekah Bartley and Ben Lagasse.
