Alicia ’82 and Jeff Collins ’80 have established the Alicia ’82 and Jeff Collins ’80 Scholarship to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University.
Jeff graduated with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and currently serves on the board of directors and as the executive vice president of public infrastructure in Houston at LJA Engineering, Inc.
Alicia graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical science and went on to work in medical research before later finding her true calling as a secondary science teacher after earning her master’s in secondary education.
Both Alicia and Jeff come from Aggie families, but it was the traditions and atmosphere of family and service that led both of them to attend Texas A&M.
The Aggie experience and valued education they received encouraged the Collins to establish a scholarship to honor Jeff’s father, Tye Collins ’50, to provide scholarship opportunities to students from small, rural areas.
