CONWAY, Ark. (AP) – Hendrix College says it has reached a goal to meet a $1 million challenge grant from an Oklahoma-based foundation. The college in Conway needed to raise $2 million in new gifts and pledges by September to meet the challenge from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Last year, Hendrix received a $26 million gift to support scholarships, promote college affordability and launch the school’s fundraising effort for a new welcome center.
