07 Jun 2011 Honoring Their Parents
As the first recipient of the Greenville Alumni Scholarship, Lacy Risner Robinson understands firsthand the power of giving back. Recently, she and her sister Laura, also an alumna, decided to repay the generosity shown to them as students by establishing their own scholarship endowment. Thanks to their generous hearts, the David and Shane Risner Endowment named in honor of their parents, will provide future students with many of the same opportunities to succeed that Lacy and Laura enjoyed on campus.
Today, both Lacy and Laura work in education. Lacy is an elementary science specialist in Region VIII, and Laura is a teacher in Mount Vernon, Texas. They each credit their parents as the reason they chose to attend A&M-Commerce, and graduate with degrees in education.
