The Texas Business Hall of Fame (TBHF) recognizes and honors the historic contributions
that business men and women have made in our state and awards scholarships annually
to students who demonstrate business leadership, entrepreneurial achievements and
outstanding moral character.
MBA students Amanda Domaschk and Bethany Devine, and DBA student Mark Brightenburg
were each named recipients of the 2017 TBHF Foundation Scholarship Program.
Brightenburg’s honor was particularly significant, as he was the first Doctor of Business
Administration (DBA) student to be awarded this prestigious scholarship in the TBHF’s
“The TBHF is a tremendous organization and I am humbled that I was both nominated
and selected to receive this honor,” said Brightenburg on his achievement as the first
DBA recipient. “I cannot say enough about how proud I am to be associated with the
Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business, its faculty and my DBA cohort.”
The University of Dallas was one of 25 universities vying for the 35 individual nominations
and UD was one of only four schools that received three scholarship winners—more than
any other university in Texas. The University of Dallas’ awards are endowed by The
Mitchell Family Foundation Scholarship.
“I appreciate not only the financial commitment that the foundation and it's members
have given to my future, but also their vote of confidence in me as an ethical and
entrepreneurial leader,” said Domaschk. “This award further strengthens my commitment
to find new and innovative ways to serve the needs of my fellow Texans.”
Domaschk, Devine and Brightenburg will be honored by the TBHF in November at the 35th
Annual Induction Dinner.
