“Nothing is more important to SOWELA than our students and their success – success in their studies, their college experience, and ultimately, their careers. The SOWELA Foundation works with donors that invest in our students through financial contributions for scholarships. With events such as The Flying Tigers Car Show we raise awareness of our students, programs, and college, while also raising funds for scholarships and enhancement,” stated Marianne White, Executive Director of Institutional Advancement, Alumni Affairs, and Community Engagement.
Many of SOWELA’s student work full or part time while attending college and juggling family obligations. Because of this, students may struggle to cover the costs of attending college. The car show helps to alleviate financial barriers that may prevent students from achieving their higher education and career goals.
SOWELA Foundation promotes community stewardship and empowers students of SOWELA Technical Community College to launch their careers through scholarships, professorships, staff development, technological advancements, program improvements, and capital expansion. Donations go directly to the College to help provide students with a world class education in Southwest Louisiana.
