The Anna High School Scholarship Foundation has been blessed with several significant donations from individuals and local business from the community this year. On Saturday, Nov. 11, the foundation received a nice check from Brookshire’s manager, Don Nutt. With this donation, nine contributors will have given more than $16,000. Those supporters are: Amoret Cain’66, Mike Montgomery’65, Anna Dental, Brookshire Grocery, Got Signs & More, JB Legacy BBQ, Omni Care Dental, Red River Title, Rod Walnofer and Scroggins Funeral Homes.

In 2017 the foundation awarded more than $25,000 to fourteen needy Anna graduates who are working towards their post-secondary degrees. The foundation is working on closing the year for the 2018 awards and will be running “Thanks” in the Anna Melissa paper the week of Thanksgiving. The foundation still needs some help, as the cost of college and tech schools continue to increase.

If you would like to support these Anna students call 972 924 3202, or you can send donations to P.O. Box 143, Anna, Texas 75409. For more information, visit the foundation’s website at
