De Queen resident, Julie Brown, donated $25,000 to the UA Cossatot Foundation to establish the Cathy Sennett Memorial Scholarship. 

The scholarship is to honor the memory of long-time Southern LP Gas employee, Cathy Sennett. The scholarship is for Sevier County college students attending UA Cossatot. Eligible applicants will need to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 and have financial need. The scholarship will award one applicant $1,250 for the 2020-2021 academic year. 

Brown said, “Cathy was a dedicated employee with Southern LP Gas for nearly 40 years. I am honored to be able to provide a gift that will leave a lasting memory of Cathy while helping local college students.” 

The UA Cossatot Foundation exists to create awareness of the need for scholarships while focusing efforts on raising resources to meet the need and furthering UA Cossatot’s institutional development.

UA Cossatot Foundation Director Dustin Roberts said, “Ms. Brown has been a big supporter of our foundation and its mission. We are pleased to receive this gift to honor the memory of Ms. Sennett and to provide scholarship opportunities for our students.”
