Graduate Business Student Receives Texas Business Hall of Fame Scholarship
The Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 scholarship
to UD's Lewis McKenzie II (pictured front row, far right), who is pursuing a master's
degree in information technology from the College of Business while working as the
chief information officer of PSA Constructors, Inc. Eighteen other graduate and undergraduate
students focusing on entrepreneurship studies at Texas universities were also awarded
"Initially, I was just overwhelmingly thankful. It will definitely reduce some of
the financial stresses that go along with obtaining a quality graduate business education,"
said McKenzie. "Then, I realized how the award also would provide a huge opportunity
for me to meet some of Texas's great business leaders during the awards luncheon and
gala in Houston."
The foundation annually awards one scholarship at each of the program's current nineteen
participating Texas universities.
