John and Wendy Jennings Endowed Presidential Scholarship
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.
In the creation of their scholarship, they trust that the University of Texas will continue to seek out and expect excellence from everyone privileged to call themselves a Longhorn.
