Billy G. Walton ’51 and Ned E. Walton ’63 have established the Walton Endowed Scholarship Fund 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.
The scholarship is the result of the Walton brothers’ desire to give back to the university and specifically, the departments they graduated from, civil and petroleum.
“I have wonderful memories as a student, professor, extension professional and assistant dean of academic affairs and programs,” said Ned Walton. “I don’t regret a moment of my time spent on Texas A&M’s campus.”
Ned completed his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees at Texas A&M while simultaneously working at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my civil engineering classes and worked hard to gain a quality education over the course of my time at Texas A&M,” he said.
After graduation, Ned held several positions within the Texas A&M College of Engineering, including assistant dean of academic affairs and programs. He also served as a sponsor for the engineering council and worked on research that directly impacts the infrastructure of our nation today.
After stepping away from his role at the university, Ned opened Walton & Associates Consulting Engineers, Inc. and continued teaching engineering courses through the engineering extension program. He has since sold the company and officially retired in 2010. He spends his free time supporting his children and grandchildren in their endeavors.
