Trish and J. Christopher Cook have established the Trish and J. Christopher Cook '93 Mechanical Engineering Scholarship. Distributions from this generous endowment will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University.
 
While researching universities in high school, Christopher said he was drawn to the culture of Texas A&M. “I had a friend who attended A&M who said that it was a big school that felt like a small school, and it was great for me because I was able to grow into the person I am today because of my experiences there.”
 
Trish and Christopher have been supporters of the mechanical engineering department at Texas A&M for many years, but recently decided to go a step further and establish this scholarship to have a larger impact. “When department head Dr. Polycarpou personally visited me at my company to propose this option, I knew I wanted to make a more lasting contribution,” Christopher said.
 
Through this scholarship, Christopher and Trish aim to give more students the ability to attend the world-class engineering school at Texas A&M and make the world better for everyone. “I believe that most of our problems will be solved by scientists, doctors and engineers,” Christopher said.
 
Christopher graduated with his degree in mechanical engineering in 1993 and is the first in his family to attend college. He and Trish have two young kids in elementary school, and the family resides in Allen, Texas.
