Endowments

Cooper Purnell Memorial Endowment

Cooper Purnell, son of Tim and Nicole Purnell, was stillborn on December 28, 2005. He forever changed the lives of his family and they want to permanently honor his memory by funding an endowment to benefit the students of Era ISD. Cooper's sister, Lorraine, is a proud Era Hornet that talks often about the brother she never knew.

The Purnell family launched this effort on his 16th birthday with a goal of it being fully funded by his 18th birthday on December 28, 2023. To learn more or donate to this endowment, please click here.
