Debbie and Mike Houx ’73 of Albuquerque, New Mexico have established the Debbie and Mike Houx ’73 Learning Endowment. The $250,000 fund may be used in all areas of Mays’ programs. But the Houxes particularly want the fund to support entrepreneurship, helping students get the tools needed to succeed — from one entrepreneur to another.

“It is a privilege, as well as a timely opportunity, to be a part of the momentum that continues to grow at Mays Business School,” says Mike Houx, president and dealer-operator of Sandia Automotive Corp. in New Mexico. “Debbie and I will always value our contribution to Mays Business School as a mutual commitment representing our appreciation of how Texas A&M has touched our lives.”

Since graduating from Mays in 1973 with a BBA in management, Houx has been involved in the automotive sales industry. He also plays an active role in his community, including serving on the board of the Albuquerque Museum Foundation. He was also a charter board member of the Albuquerque Texas A&M Club and was Aggie Muster chairman in 2000 and 2003.
