CGU was honored to serve as the Platinum Sponsor for the 24th Annual 100 Black Men of West Texas’ Annual Scholarship Gala which was held on January 26, 2019 at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center at Texas Tech. A portion of CGU’s sponsorship will be used to fund college scholarships to local high school seniors.

The local chapter of the 100 is one of the 117 global chapters of the 100 Black Men of America. In addition to providing scholarships, serving as mentors, and providing educational services to youth of all cultural backgrounds, the 100 advocates for health and wellness, economic development, and leadership development.

Texas Tech Music in the Marche students


The School of Music at Texas Tech created a faculty-led study abroad program called Music in the Marche`. Under this program, students study opera in the summer in Mondavio, Italy. They are completely immersed in the Italian culture and even live with host families during their stay. In addition to opera training, the students also receive a crash course in the Italian language by learning to communicate with their host families.

The Center has partnered with Music in the Marche for several years, providing scholarship funding to students toward their study abroad tuition. In 2019, the Center was proud to award funds that will sponsor eight TTU students to participate in the 2019 session.
