Texas Exes Austin Chapter Past President’s Scholarship
In 2011, former Texas Exes Austin Chapter Presidents Richard Heller, David Thompson, and Ted Barnhill started up the Past President’s Scholarship Endowment to recognize the hard work and dedication of the Past Presidents of the Texas Exes Austin Chapter and as a direct way that the Past Presidents can continue to give back to the Texas Exes Austin Chapter. In 2013, this Scholarship became fully endowed and will be eligible to benefit a one-year scholarship for entering freshmen at The University of Texas at Austin from the Austin area.
