Lucia (Lucy) and Kevin Leonard have established the Lucia A. '93 and Kevin P. Leonard '92 Undergraduate Petroleum Ventures Program Scholarship Endowment. 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 petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University.
 
Both Lucy and Kevin were the first in their families to attend Texas A&M and were drawn to the university specifically for its engineering program. “I knew I wanted to study engineering and Texas A&M was known for having an outstanding engineering program,” Kevin said. “Plus, College Station offered a distance from home that was far enough away to be on my own but close enough so that my parents could visit occasionally.”
 
Lucy also knew she wanted to be an Aggie growing up. “Texas A&M was the only school I applied to and it was five hours away from my hometown. I was drawn to the engineering program at A&M and petroleum was the perfect fit,” she said.
 
The Leonards feel that Texas A&M not only gives students an outstanding education but so much more. “Being an Aggie teaches you about respect, service, leadership, loyalty and more,” they said. “It’s the overall experience that makes a great student, a great employee and a future leader. We are thrilled to help Aggies get this education and experience.”
 
They felt that now was a good time to establish an endowment to help support future Aggie petroleum engineers and leaders in the industry. “The petroleum industry has been good to us.  We’ve enjoyed the friendships, comradery and career opportunities that it has provided our family over the past 25 years and hope that others enjoy what it has to offer for the next 25 years and beyond,” they said.
 
The Leonards know how important financial support of any kind is for students. They also hope that their gift to future Aggie petroleum engineers, as they reflect on their lives and careers, will inspire them to establish a gift to Texas A&M when they feel the time is right.
 
Kevin and Lucia graduated from Texas A&M with their bachelor’s degrees in petroleum engineering -- Kevin in 1993, and Lucia in 1994. Together they have two children. Their oldest is a freshman at Texas A&M majoring in public health and is in the class of 2024. Their youngest is in third grade and they hope he will also attend Texas A&M.

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.
