The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors Foundation recently announced the winners of the annual Majestic Realty Co. Educational Scholarship program. Five $10,000 awards were presented to outstanding graduate students pursuing careers in commercial real estate. Jacob Milligan, a master of real estate student at Mays Business School at Texas A&M was one of the five recipients.

Majestic Realty established the scholarship program in 2006, in partnership with the SIOR Foundation. The company received dozens of entries from students in prestigious MBA programs in the developer’s core business states—California, Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Nevada and Texas. R. Stan Conway, vice president of Majestic Realty Co., presented the scholarships at the fall professional conference of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors.

“Majestic Realty is committed to supporting education on many fronts, and we are proud to present our scholarships to these worthy individuals,” Conway said. “We believe these students, all of whom already have established real estate careers, will carry the commercial and industrial real estate industry into the future with innovation and enthusiasm.”

Milligan is in his last semester at Texas A&M. He graduated with a BA in agribusiness in 2006 and began his master’s degree program shortly after. He has maintained a 4.0 GPR throughout his entire academic career. Milligan recently interned at Q10 Kinghorn, Driver, Hough & Co., a commercial mortgage firm in Houston.

When he graduates later this month, Milligan will have a job waiting for him with ProLogis, an industrial real estate development firm, as a market representative in Dallas. Milligan hails from Van, Texas. His interests include development, capital markets and mortgage banking.

Other scholarship winners were: Sara Klaustermeier, University of Colorado; Abbey A. Barnett, Southern Methodist University; Kevin Galbasini, University of Southern California; and Lieutenant Kevin J. Whirity, University of Florida.
