The managing partners of a Houston-based company have committed to a $100,000 gift for the WildHorse Resources Business Honors Scholarship fund at Mays Business School.
Anthony Bahr (’91), CEO, and Jay Graham (’92), president, of WildHorse Resources say they enjoy visiting with Mays students when on campus and they wanted to support the program that trains the top emerging business leaders.
WildHorse is a private oil and gas production company with operations in Texas and Louisiana and employs a number of Aggie graduates and interns in its Houston headquarters.
“Jay and I have benefited tremendously from our experiences at Texas A&M, and we are thankful for the opportunity to help another talented individual become an Aggie and build a strong foundation that will be a great help to their future success,” Bahr says.
Graham concurred, adding, “We were fortunate to meet a lot of good people during and after our time at Texas A&M. Those connections have continued to be beneficial.”
“We are so thankful to Anthony and Jay for their most generous support of our students and school,” said Mays Dean Jerry Strawser. “Their entrepreneurial spirit, business success and generosity truly make them great role models for our students.”
