During the first week of the New Year, Robert L. Jamail, Trustee and Don Stevens, Executive Director of the Jamail Galveston Foundation presented Galveston College Foundation with a check for $25,000 for Universal Access (UA). The Jamail Galveston Foundation Trustees noted that the grant was awarded due to UA’s significant inducement over the last decade for Galveston high school students to graduate from Galveston College and pursue meaningful, stable, and relevant employment opportunities. Since the beginning of the Universal Access program, The Jamail Galveston Foundation has given $80,000 and encourages individuals, area businesses, and corporate employers to recognize the value of the vital workforce development and academic programs at Galveston College which benefit not only Galveston but Texas at large. Higher education has always been among its principal reasons for giving. Once more, Galveston College Foundation is grateful to the family of Lee Hage and Joseph D. Jamail for their constancy and generosity in support of students and their families on the Island.
