Southern Arkansas University's foundation director Jeanie Bismark says a surge of online contributions made an endowed scholarship possible in honor of rodeo horse Credit Card. Five horses were stolen from Mulerider Stables last year and Credit Card was later found with a slashed throat. Bismark says the scholarship will benefit a rodeo student and enhance this intercollegiate sport at SAU.
