The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana Foundation announced they will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a national day of generosity. #GivingTuesday is a global movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world.

According to a press release, this is a day where we can all make a difference and make an impact on the UAHT Foundation and the lives of the students too. Donations can be made anytime between now and Tuesday, December 1, 2020.

This year, we will be raising funds to complete the Jeff Cook Memorial Endowed Scholarship. Mr. Cook was a beloved business instructor at UAHT. His kindness and generous heart made him and a favorite among his students. During his time at UAHT, Jeff and his wife Catherine established an annual scholarship to help students improve their lives through education.

“I’d like to ask those thinking about giving on #GivingTuesday, to please consider donating in memory of Jeff Cook,” said Catherine Cook. “While Jeff had several careers before settling down to teaching, anyone who knew him learned how much he cared about his students. Teaching at UAHT was a job that Jeff loved and for which he was uniquely gifted. After he passed away, I started an endowment to make sure that his commitment to the students of UAHT would continue in the future. Please consider giving to this endowment during this Giving Tuesday.”

If you would like to contribute to the Jeff Cook Memorial Endowed Scholarship, other scholarships, or establish a scholarship at UAHT, contact the UAHT Foundation at or call 870.722.8516. Donations can be made via PayPal at
