John and Wendy Jennings Endowed Presidential Scholarship
The John and Wendy Jennings Endowed Presidential Scholarship was established by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System on August 11, 2011, to benefit The University of Texas College of Communication. Gift funds were provided by Mr. John and Mrs. Wendy Jennings.
John and Wendy are out-of-state parents from Orlando, Florida. Their daughter, Christina Jennings, earned a BS from the College of Communication in 2005.
Wendy says that they were embraced by the UT community right away. As soon as they stepped onto the Forty Acres they got the feeling that “We are Texas.”

At the time their daughter was accepted to UT, the Jennings had no idea how hard it was to be accepted as an out-of-state incoming freshman. From day one, they have been “Texas Proud.”
The College of Communication challenged and nurtured Christina’s creativity and John and Wendy wanted to provide that opportunity for other students gifted in the arts and communication.
With their scholarship, they trust Texas will continue to seek out and expect excellence from everyone who has the privilege to call themselves a Longhorn.
