Stewart Takes Leadership Role in 50th Anniversary Gala
H. Malcolm Stewart has taken the “Leadership” role as the title sponsor of the 50th Anniversary Gala and Dean’s Roundtable hosted by the College of Education and Human Development on April 25, 2020. His commitment initiates the establishment of scholarships and other student support that will help transform the future.
“I support CEHD because it provides individuals the opportunity to become educators in many different fields. I am personally committed and believe that higher education is one of the most critical foundations of a successful society, and it requires quality educators to achieve that success,” he stated.
“Malcolm’s Leadership Sponsor gift will establish the first endowed scholarship tied to this 50th Anniversary celebration and fund-raising effort,” said Dean Joyce Alexander. “Sponsorships like this will be used to create endowed and non-endowed scholarships, graduate fellowships, and general student support in our college.”
This historic event at the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M campus, will be held in conjunction with the annual Dean’s Roundtable where benefactors honor those who have made a positive impact throughout the state of Texas and beyond. The gala will feature the recognition of 50 transformational leaders, an inspiring keynote address, fine food, dancing and entertainment by Party Machine.
“There are many individuals such as myself who are committed to higher education and I hope that my sponsorship sends a message to support this cause,” Stewart explained.
Stewart is a member of the CEHD Dean’s Development Council that seeks to assist in attracting financial resources to support students, faculty and program development activities and to enhance facilities within the college. He is president and chief operating officer of Camden Property Trust, a multi-billion dollar publicly traded multi-family real estate organization based in Houston, Texas.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in building construction from Texas A&M and was a member of the Corps of Cadets, a Ross Volunteer, and was a Distinguished Military Graduate. He received a regular Army commission as a Combat Engineer and served three years before transitioning into the private sector. He supports many activities at A&M including CEHD study abroad scholarships, the Coaching Academy, the CEHD Aggie Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Camps, and the Dean’s Excellence Fund. He serves on the Executive Committee of the Master’s of Real Estate Program in the Mays Business School.
