The Southern Arkansas University Tech Foundation is pleased to announce that Coach Houston Nutt will be the featured guest for Rocket Night on April 24, 2021, at 6:30 pm.

Rocket Night is an annual fundraiser for student scholarships and a night to recognize SAU Tech's students' academic and athletic achievements. Coach Nutt had scheduled to speak at the event in 2020, and then the College canceled Rocket Night due to COVID-19 restrictions. Coach Nutt generously agreed to reschedule for 2021 and include a VIP event before the evening's main event. The Woods family is catering the evening meal and sponsoring the VIP event.

The funds raised by the event go to support the College's Tech Scholars program. Each Tech Scholar receives a $1,000 scholarship towards housing costs when they are accepted into the program. Students who choose to live at home and attend receive a $500 scholarship. Donations can be made directly to the Scholars program at

SAU Tech is following Arkansas's COVID-19 guidelines for the event. Go online at to purchase tickets or contact Amber Savage at
