Dr. David Bishop, dean of the Wayland Baptist University campus in Lubbock, and Dr. Paul Armes, Wayland president, presented a special framed shadow box of a Flying Queens jersey to Marsha Sharp, WBU graduate and keynote speaker at the April 19 Lubbock Lights gala fundraiser for scholarships. The annual gala raised $34,000 for an endowed fund that will provide scholarships for students at the campus annually based on interest from the endowment. A silent auction of donated items raised an additional $4,000, and the gala was a sellout at the Lakeridge Country Club.
