Scott Felton, a Class of 2019 Full-Time MBA candidate at Mays Business School, is a 2018 scholarship recipient of the Texas Business Hall of Fame (TBHF). He will be awarded $15,000 at a scholarship luncheon on Nov. 1 and will be recognized at an induction dinner that evening.
Shannon Deer, director of the Full-Time MBA program, described Scott as a thoughtful leader and a contributing member of the MBA program. “Scott has an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. He is a thoughtful leader who makes valuable contributions in the classroom that enhance his classmates’ learning experience,” she said. “Scott strives for excellence in all he does. I look forward to hearing about his many successes for years to come, including induction to the Texas Business Hall of Fame someday. Scott is a deserving recipient of this very prestigious scholarship and we are proud to have him in the program.”
According to TBHF guidelines, eligible candidates for the scholarship exhibit entrepreneurial aspirations, demonstrate a propensity for leadership in academic and campus activities and entrepreneurial achievements, and have good academic credentials.
Recipients were chosen after a round of nominations and then an interview process. A final recipient for each scholarship was selected to represent each of the participating universities.
Previous Mays students to win TBHF scholarships include Full-Time MBA graduates Willie Dennis, Lloyd McGuire, and Brian Carpenter.
