Freed-Hardeman, a college in Henderson, TN, is lobbying lawmakers for its share of Tennessee's lottery funded scholarship money. The school is affiliated with what we tend to call 'Institutional' churches of Christ, i.e, churches that give money to para-church organizations:
The group is led by Dwayne Wilson, the executive vice president of the Churches of Christ-affiliated school in Henderson.

Wilson opposed the referendum clearing the way for a lottery and says he'd like to see the Legislature not pass enabling legislation.

Still, if there are to be lottery-funded scholarships, Wilson wants his students to have an even chance to get them.

It's certainly unfair from the state's standpoint to deny them the scholarships, but it seems a bit unseemly on the college's part to ask for it.
