In just three years, Dr. Charles Etheridge and his students have written successful grant applications totaling more than $270,000 to benefit the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. Earlier this year, Etheridge, an associate professor of English, secured a grant from the Coastal Bend Community Foundation’s Diabetes Initiative to fund the Food Bank’s “Kitchen Kaptains” program targeting children at risk for obesity and diabetes. For his commitment to the Food Bank, the non-profit honored Etheridge with the Bill Crook Award.
