Monty and Victoria Fisher of Denton County have established the Monty &Victoria Fisher Scholarship at North Central Texas College with a $50,000 donation to the NCTC Foundation this week.

The Fishers are no strangers to NCTC, having both attended the college at one point in time. Monty is a Cooke County native and graduated from Gainesville High School. Victoria grew up close by, in Montague County, and graduated from Saint Jo High School.

“NCTC was a starting point for me, right out of high school,” said Monty. “We continue to be very excited about what the college is doing in these communities and we’re excited to help out the students who need it most in our home counties.”

This scholarship will be awarded to students living in Cooke or Montague County who show financial need.
