Mackenzie Middle School begins scholarship endowment

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Administration at Mackenzie Middle School presented a $25,000 check to the Community Foundation of West Texas for the creation of the Mark and Becky Lanier Raider/Mustang Scholarship.

Mackenzie Middle School alumnus Mark Lanier donated $12,500 to the project, matching the $12,500 raised by students, staff and parents over the last four months.

"I think the greatest thing is that we simply have created a scholarship that hopefully inspires students to chase their academic goals and understand that there is money available for them and that we can help support those students as they choose to go off to college," John Martinez, Mackenzie Middle School Principal, said.

A $1,000 college scholarship will be designated specifically for a former Mackenzie Middle School student that graduates from Coronado High School. The scholarship will be available beginning in 2020.
