On Friday, September 27th, Chairman of the Donald T. Boumans Foundation, Mike Roebuck, presented a check to Lamar University for $10,000. The check presentation was made to establish the Donald T. Boumans Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was established to present students enrolled in the Engineering Degree program at Lamar University with funds to continue their education. Five Engineering students were selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship for the Fall 2013 semester. Many of the students were present at the check presentation and were very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the legacy of Mr. Boumans.
The Foundation Board of Directors is very thankful to the many friends and area businesses who have contributed to the Foundation and is dedicated to working hard to keep Don’s memory alive and support the education of young people in our area.
