West Texas A&M University is offering a new scholarship opportunity in honor of a prominent Amarillo resident.
The Joe Bob McCartt Memorial Scholarship will go to undergraduate and graduate students in the Engler College of Business who have a 3.0 GPA or greater.
Preference will be given to students demonstrating need and to returning or first-generation students.
The scholarship will give a minimum of $1,000 annually to one or more students.
Joe Bob McCartt was a leading Amarillo commercial real estate broker who passed away in December 2020 due to Covid-related complications.
The scholarship is a fitting legacy for McCartt, said Dr. Amjad Abullat, dean of the Engler College of Business. “Joe Bob was well known for his involvement with and support for future business leaders,” Abdullat said. “This is why his friends and family and the Engler College of Business wanted to have a meaningful and impactful scholarship to honor him.”
