MCALLEN, TX (October 31, 2017) – Students enrolled in Construction and Public Safety programs at South Texas College now have the opportunity to benefit from the first scholarship commitment donated by Noble Charities Construction.

Rene Capistran, President and CEO of Noble was in attendance at the regular meeting for STC Trustees on Oct. 24, and committed a check on behalf Noble Charities,  a scholarship fund in the amount of $25,000, to be paid for the next five years. Five students a year will then be eligible for up to $1,000 a year in scholarship money.

“Our goal is to tie the scholarship opportunity with the facility’s opening so the students will have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship. That would be our goal. We want to be able to use this as soon as the campus is ready,” Capistran said. “This is the tip of the iceberg. Our goal is to grow the scholarship commitment, and support as many students as we can in this program. Obviously, living so close to the border, law enforcement continues to be one of the top priorities.

“I am very excited to see that South Texas College is taking a leadership role in creating this program,” Capistran said. “It’s not just a law enforcement program, it’s a state of the art program. No one else in the region will have all the technical aspects and live simulation opportunities that this program will offer our students.”

In addition, Capistran is excited about the construction program that is now housed in the new $16 million facility at the Technology Campus. He believes students pursuing this degree will have a great quality of life once they complete their studies.

Located at 4300 S. Cage Blvd. in Pharr, the RCPSE will make STC the first border community college in the nation to establish integrative training for local, state and federal professionals in law enforcement, public safety, fire safety and Homeland Security along the US/Mexico border.

The $71 million master plan is slated to transform the RCPSE into a Public Safety, Law Enforcement, Fire Science and Homeland Security campus by 2030. The facility is located on a 64 acre site in Pharr with 180 additional acres available for future expansion. The master plan includes 534,385 square feet of buildings, structures and a driving track to be completed in three phases over the next decade.

“Not only do we want to build a campus, we want to provide support that strengthens our education community,” Capistran said. “We build a sense of belonging and unity that inspires our team to make a difference and be a part of the fabric of our community. What better way to support a student that while they are attending college.”
