Grants & Gifts

A Summary Listing of Grants and Gifts at Colleges Around the Nation

The University of Arkansas Cossatot Foundation Drawdown hosted on February 10, 2018, at the De Queen Country Club raised over $11,000 for scholarships and college projects in memory of Lawrence Chandler. At the event, family, friends, and community members celebrated Chandler, founder of Chandler Funeral Home and a De Queen community leader. The tribute video debuted at the event can be seen on the UA Cossatot Foundation’s Facebook page. Funds raised included a Legacy 2020 donation from Chandler Funeral home. A classroom is now named the Lawrence Chandler Classroom because of the donation. UA Cossatot Chancellor Steve Cole and Little River County Judge Mike Cranford emceed the drawdown. The last four ticket holders decided to split the $5,000 drawdown prize. Winners were Teresa Brewer, Glenda Rogers, Della Spears, and Total Assessments Solutions Corp. Total Assessments Solution’s Corp. owner DeWayne Mack donated their winnings back to the Lawrence Chandler Memorial Scholarship.
