Conque family establishes scholarship fund

The University of Central Arkansas recently announced the establishment of a new scholarship fund aimed at assisting students studying in the College of Business.

The Conque Family Scholarship Fund was established by UCA Head Football Coach Clint Conque and his wife, Angele.

Athletics is a big part of our life, obviously, but so is academics, and we wanted to show that by establishing a scholarship to benefit the academic side of the university. We chose to support students studying in the College of Business because our oldest son earned a degree from that college, and wanted to show our appreciation for the education he received. This was our way of giving back and were proud to support UCAs Centennial Campaign, Angele said. I am grateful to Coach Conque and his family for setting up the Conque scholarship, said UCA President Lu Hardin. This sends a strong message from our football coach about the value of academic success. The Conques give annually to the fund and plan to endow the scholarship. Once the fund reaches endowment level, it will be permanently established with the UCA Foundation and only the interest from the gift will be used for support.
