Permian Basin Gives Tuesday, May 21, 2024
All Day


On May 21, West Texas residents will once again come together for Permian Basin Gives, a day of giving to help improve quality of life in our region.  During this day, all donations received by Midland College will go to the General Scholarship Fund to help students realize their higher education goals and career dreams. Donations will be matched by the Midland College Foundation’s General Scholarship endowment for the 2024-2025 academic year. 


Midland College scholarships help students like Zayda Wakley.  She earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal, which resulted in her promotion to become the court administrator for the City of Midland Municipal Court.

Through a Midland College scholarship, single mother Marisol Ramos obtained a Midland College certificate in Vocational Nursing and later an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing.  She has now completed bachelor’s, master’s and post-master’s degrees in nursing and works as a nurse practitioner with Dr. Anjana Rastogi at Synergy Integrative Medical Clinic in Midland.

Isaiah Ramirez took advantage of a Midland College scholarship during the time he was enrolled in the College’s Firefighter Academy.  Once he began working for the Midland Fire Department, he continued to take classes at Midland College and graduated in May 2023 with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Emergency Medicine.  Today he is a firefighter/paramedic working out of Station 2 on the corner of Florida and Terrell streets in Midland.

Your gift to Midland College for Permian Basin Gives not only helps to make a difference in the lives of students like Zayda, Marisol and Isaiah, but also provides a skilled workforce that benefits all of us.
