All the money raised goes to the Doug Damron Memorial Scholarship Fund. For local students, that could mean a big chunk of college tuition. "Last year we gave out 22 scholarships totaling $15,000. It looks like this year, we're going to have the ability to give out even more scholarships," says Rick Doehne, Treasurer of IRWA, Chapter 35.
The scholarships go to well-rounded high school seniors from all over West Texas. Everyone is encouraged to apply.
The scholarship was named after the late Doug Damron, a long time member of the IRWA, a University Lands employee, and an outstanding member of the community.
