Money raised scholarship fund

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An annual fundraiser was held at the Cooper Alumni Center Saturday afternoon.  Participants enjoyed good barbeque along with other activities.  The outstanding Business Executive of the year was also announced.

Organizers say with the way people are having to find ways to pay for college, this event is a good way to help some of those in need.

"With the economy and things like they are right now we know there are lots of students out there that won't get to go to college unless they have some kind of financial assistance so we do our best to try to provide a way for them to get a good education," said executive director of development Christy Browning.

Money from the event will go to the business department scholarship fund.
