Stacy Bush Lyon ’94 and Larry R. Bush have established the Bush Family Scholarship.  Distributions from this endowment will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate degree in the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution at Texas A&M University.

Lyon’s journey at Texas A&M began a bit differently than the average Aggie. Having been accepted and registered for classes at another institution, she was prepared not to attend Texas A&M. However, during the late summer before her freshman year, she finally received her acceptance letter and knew that was where she wanted to go. 

“While I was at Fish Camp, my parents called and said they met Charles Brown ’61 on their cruise that owned (what was at the time) the University Tower and that they would find me a spot to move into,” Lyon said. “So I came home from Fish Camp on Saturday, packed up some stuff and headed to College Station the next day. On Monday, which also happened to be the first day of school, I registered for classes. It all happened so quickly I didn't have time to think.”

Lyon’s father, Larry R. Bush, is not an Aggie but felt that Texas A&M was the perfect place to establish this scholarship due to his daughter's connection with the university and his own involvement with industrial distribution growing up. “Hopefully, with the high cost of education, we can help an engineering student financially,” he said. 

Additionally, Lyon and Bush wanted to establish this scholarship with Texas A&M because of the many experiences Lyon had during her time there and how they impacted her life. “I did three study-abroad programs. The professors on the programs were so engaging, funny and supportive. Those programs helped shape and grow my character. I learned to adapt to new environments, cultures, people and situations,” Lyon said. 

“Many of my stories that I tell my children, coworkers or friends were because of my college experience. We want to give someone who works hard and has a good heart, a chance to attend the best university there is and get a little help financially.” 

Lyon graduated from Texas A&M with her degree in industrial distribution in 1994 as the first Aggie in her family. Her son Austin will start at Texas A&M in this fall studying engineering. 

Giving With a Purpose

The College of Engineering is one of the leading engineering programs in the United States, ranking first in undergraduate enrollment and ninth in graduate enrollment. Endowments supporting the students in the college have an immeasurable impact on their education. If you are interested in supporting the College of Engineering and its departments or would like more information on how you can give, please contact Kelly Corcoran, senior director of development.
