Stanton P. Bell ’54 has committed $80,000 to endow a scholarship for undergraduate students studying at Mays Business School. His gift creates the Stanton F. Bell ’29 President’s Endowed Memorial Scholarship, in memory of his father and intended for Corps of Cadets students majoring in business.

“Mr. Bell’s gift honors his father and provides an opportunity for an outstanding student to study at Mays,” Dean Jerry Strawser said. “His generous endowment will ensure the legacy of both through the accomplishments of the students it supports.”

Bell served as a Lt. Colonel on the Corps staff and was executive officer of the Ross Volunteers and a member of the Student Senate while at A&M. After graduation, he was assigned to the 24th Infantry Division in Korea. He is currently president and owner of Bell Hydrogas Propane, director of Compass Bank and a director of Mission Gas Corp. He is past president of the San Antonio Country Club, where he has been golf champion and senior golf champion, and is a director of Children’s Hospital Foundation, Boysville and The Valero Texas Open Golf Tournament.

“I’m happy to help in a small way since any success I have enjoyed is due in large part to my education at Texas A&M,” Bell said.
