Texas Business Hall of FameThe 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 history.

“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.
