Swinbank Family Invests In First Generation College Students
Shirley and Joe Swinbank ’74 have committed $200,000 to the College of Education and Human Development to establish the Shirley and Joe Swinbank ’74 Sprint Waste Dean’s Education Scholars Award.
The funds will be used to provide two scholarships to full-time students of good standing pursuing an undergraduate degree in the College of Education and Human Development. The scholarship will be awarded to students who graduated from high school in Fort Bend and Montgomery counties or from Harris County, are pursuing a degree leading to teacher certification and are first-generation college students.
The Swinbank’s generous involvement with the university dates back to 2004 when the two made a substantial donation to create the Shirley and Joe Swinbank ’74 Rural Entrepreneurship Graduate Teaching Assistantship. They also endowed the $100,000 Joe Swinbank`74 Endowed Rural Entrepreneurship Seminar Series to support student-interactive events, contributed to the Agriculture and Life Sciences Building, and regularly support Aggie athletics through the 12th Man Foundation.
