ODESSA - A $55,000 scholarship for Odessa students was doubled on Tuesday.

It's a joint effort between Odessa College and the Permian Basin Workforce Development Board.

The College presented a check for $55,000 to the school district.

But that's not all; the workforce board is matching that amount bringing the total to $110,000.

Officials say the money will go to help students taking dual credit courses.
