J. Robert Chambers ’89 and Kimberly A. Chambers ’91, of Houston, have endowed a $60,000 scholarship fund that will support worthy students at Mays. The Chambers’ gift creates the J. Robert Chambers ’89 and Kimberly A. Chambers ’91 President’s Endowed Scholarship.
“The Chambers’ generous gift will keep the “Aggie Miracle’ â€” the process through which persons of modest means obtain a top-flight education because of the generosity of our former students â€” alive and well,” said Dean Jerry Strawser. “We appreciate Robert and Kimberly’s generosity and hope they know the tremendous difference they will make in the life of the student fortunate enough to benefit from their gift.”
Robert and Kimberly both received bachelor’s degrees in business administration from Texas A&M and were members of the Fellows program. They currently reside in Houston with their son, William. Robert is a managing director at Lehman Brothers, where he manages a hedge fund focusing on energy investments.
“Having received a President’s Endowed Scholarship myself, I am very grateful that God has blessed us so that we can, in turn, help support future students,” Robert Chambers said.
