Former students establish scholarship to benefit two colleges

Alexandra Wisniewski ’10 and Michael Nance ’08 of Houston, Texas, have joined together to create the Alex Wisniewski ’10 and Michael Nance ’08 Endowed Scholarship.

The endowment, created through the Texas A&M Foundation, will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate degree in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering in the Dwight Look College of Engineering or from any department within the Mays Business School. The award will alternate each year between a petroleum engineering student and a business school student.

Nance received his bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering in 2008 and is employed by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and Wisniewski is a 2010 recipient of a bachelor’s in business administration.

Contributions to the endowment were made in part by friends and family of Nance and Wisniewski in addition to matching funds from Anadarko.
