Dr. Jason Penry recently established the Jason Penry, Ph.D. ’08 Endowed Graduate Fellowship. The gift will provide financial assistance to one or more full-time students pursuing a doctorate in educational administration with a higher education emphasis.
Penry is currently the Assistant Vice President for Operations at the Texas A&M Foundation. He previously served as the Vice Chancellor for Advancement at Arkansas State after holding various development roles at Oklahoma State and within the Texas Tech University System. He earned his doctorate in higher education administration from the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University.
“I am grateful for all the opportunities my degree from Texas A&M has presented me,” stated Penry. “This gift commitment is a small way to express my gratitude.”
“We are thrilled to award a scholarship bearing the name of one of our higher education administration alumni,” stated Dr. Mario Torres, head of the CEHD department of educational administration. “This fellowship in every respect symbolizes Dr. Penry’s dedication to preparing the next generation of leaders in colleges and universities. His generous gift comes at critical time and will surely have a lasting impact on the academic experiences of our students.”
