SHERMAN, TX -- local college students spent their summer raising thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations.  

During a two day grant writing workshop students were taught how to address economic and social problems in the local community.  

And, with the help of TCOG, Austin college students raised $40,000 dollars in grants for local non profits.  

"Building a region, building a quality of life, making things better for students, for citizens.  We can come together and do that and then be recognized nationally for that is impressive and its rewarding," said TCOG Exec. Director Susan Thomas.

Involvement in the program earned TCOG the innovation award from NADO for having a significant and positive impact on Texoma.
