Chuck ’62 and Beverly Moreland say they hope to help Mays Business School attract the best-qualified students by providing monetary assistance when needed. To do so, they have established the Chuck ’62 and Beverly Moreland Scholarship in Business.
The scholarship was initiated by a $50,000 gift, and the donors say their preferred recipients would be Corps of Cadets members in financial need.
Mays Business School did not exist when Chuck Moreland attended Texas A&M, but he says a business degree in marketing was very important in his preparation for a career. “It provided a sound basis for my entry into the world of business,” he recalls. “Texas A&M completed that education by providing the skills necessary to live in that world.”
The Morelands say they have been inspired by many others who have helped them pursue their lifelong goals. “It is only reasonable that we should give back to help others in the pursuit of theirs,” he says. “We felt Mays Business School was the best way to help those individuals and at the same time help Texas A&M.”
Mays Dean Jerry Strawser expressed his appreciation for the gift. “The Morelands’ generosity will make a significant impact on the lives of the students who will receive and benefit from their scholarship,” Strawser says. “People such as the Morelands are truly providing our students with an opportunity that will benefit them for the remainder of their lives. We cannot thank them enough.”
