Spirit of Midland Endowed Dean's Scholarship in Business


The Spirit of Midland Endowed Dean's Scholarship in Business was established by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System on February 10, 2014, to benefit The University of Texas McCombs School of Business. Gift funds were provided by Mr. Harris E. Kerr.

While Harris Kerr holds UT degrees in history and law, and practices Law in Midland, he has several family members who went to UT to study business.

Harris wanted to honor two fellow Texas Exes who have been his clients, friends, business partners, and mentors with this scholarship. One is James L. Lamb, Jr., and the other is the late Paul Friemel.

Both men played an important role in Harris’ life, and he is pleased to recognize them in his way. He hopes to spur others in his community to join him in supporting this scholarship.

The more who sign on, the more the endowment will increase opportunities for the young people of Midland.
