Couple establishes excellence fund in mechanical engineering

Reinette and Jack Miller of Houston have created the Reinette and Jack E. Miller ’74 Excellence Fund with their gift to the Texas A&M Foundation.

Distributions from the $50,000 endowment will be used to support the Department of Mechanical Engineering within the Dwight Look College of Engineering. Excellence funds allow the department head to use the funds for specific departmental priorities such as equipment acquisition, faculty teaching awards or career development, student competitions or conference travel, or special events.

Jack Miller earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University. He is currently an executive vice president at Stress Engineering Services in Houston.

In addition to their support of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Millers are also supporters of the 12th Man Foundation and Association of Former Students.
