Center City and Amarillo College partnership

Amarillo, TX - A big name will be coming to Amarillo. Center City announced that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani will be a guest speaker this fall.

During his visit, Giuliani will talk about leadership and downtown renovation. It is part of a celebration honoring Underwood Law Firm's 100th anniversary in Amarillo. Proceeds for the event will benefit both Center City and the Amarillo College honors program. The program already assists students with tuition, fees, textbooks and other expenses. Amarillo College says Underwood Law Firm has worked closely with Amarillo College in the past and saw this event as another opportunity to keep lending a helping hand.

"They came to us and said, look, we're planning this event and we really want you to be a part of it and we want to help support the Amarillo college honors program," Amarillo College president Paul Matney said. "So, again, we are very grateful. We're glad to be a part of this and this is really going to be exciting for our community."

Center City says it has made great progress with its downtown revitalization project. 

Representatives say they have more plans to enhance the city by acknowledging historic landmarks throughout Amarillo.
