On Monday, husband and wife community leaders Debbi and Dean Hester announced their support for Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso (TTUHSC El Paso) with a $15,000 contribution to the Triple Scholarship as a sponsor of the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine’s 10-year anniversary celebration, “Red Tie Affair for A White Coat Occasion”.
The Hesters have lived in El Paso for more than forty years and continue to invest in the community, having supported TTUHSC El Paso since its inception more than a decade ago.
“We are honored to provide the medical school with a contribution that will support student scholarships and strengthen the pipeline for medical professionals in this community and throughout the region,” said Dean Hester, Attorney and Partner at Ainsa, Hutson, Hester & Crews LLP. “Not only is the medical school increasing the number of graduates each year, but TTUHSC El Paso is boosting our local economy by creating hundreds of high-paying jobs and investing in major construction projects for the growing campus – a more than $227 million annual impact.”
The Foster School of Medicine recruits students from El Paso and across West Texas, with a mission of improving access to quality health care in the Borderland. The scholarships will assist students from El Paso and students who have returned to the Sun City to attend the Foster School of Medicine after completing their undergraduate studies elsewhere.
“Through my real estate business, I have the privilege of welcoming new medical students and their families to our incredible city as they relocate to attend school,” said Debbi Hester, Realtor at ERA Sellers Buyers.
“Our city continues to grow and over the last decade Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso has grown with it. I am proud to support student scholarships for the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine and look forward to celebrating a decade of excellence.”
TTUHSC El Paso‘s “Red Tie Affair For A White Coat Occasion” event will be held on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020, in celebration of the Foster School of Medicine’s 10-year anniversary.
