CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 17, 2003 - The Sikeston Area Higher Education Center (SAHEC) will hold its second annual dinner auction and dance Feb. 7 at the Elks Club in Sikeston, Mo.

The event is designed to raise need-based and merit scholarship funds for the 1,200 students who attend the Center. Currently, there are only four designated scholarships for SAHEC students.

"In order to provide for our many students who need financial assistance, we hope we have a big crowd join us February 7," said Judy Buck, SAHEC director. "We are asking that everyone help be a part of the growth of our Center and the regional area by supporting our scholarship dinner auction."

Entertainment will be provided by the Jerry Ford Band. Tickets are $35 each. A sponsor's reserved table of 10 is $1,000. Tickets are available at SAHEC.

Buck said that since SAHEC opened its doors in January 1998, enrollment at the Sikeston Center has grown from 305 to more than 1,200 students. In the past year alone, enrollment has increased by 30 percent.

SAHEC students can work toward several associate of applied science degrees at the Center. In addition, students can choose to begin work on a bachelor's degree from Southeast Missouri State University.
