A desire to assist Mays Business School students prompted two Texas A&M University alumni to donate $250,000 to establish theÂ Becky ’76 and Monty Davis ’77 Endowed Business Honors ScholarshipÂ Program. This program will support two students during their four-year studies in Mays’ Business Honors program.
Monty and Becky were the lead donors for the “Davis Center for Football Player Development” near Kyle Field.
Monty Davis, who received an accounting degree at Texas A&M, has spoken with Mays Business Honors students numerous times, and has been impressed with their questions and feedback. He says his accounting degree provided him with a solid start. “It gave me a good foundation for my career, and the things I learned at Texas A&M have served me well since,” he says. “I want to help young people have this opportunity to learn now, so that it helps them in the future.”
“We are so very appreciative of Becky and Monty’s generosity,” said Mays Dean Jerry Strawser. “The Davis Scholarship Program will allow our School to compete for outstanding students who are considering the very best universities across the United States.”
Monty Davis is COO of Core Laboratories, an oil service company that advises oil exploration and production companies on how to get the most oil or gas out of reservoirs. Becky majored in elementary education at Texas A&M. After raising their two daughters, she devotes most of her time to church and ranch activities.
