Keyana Carr, an MBA student at Lamar University, recently received the Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation scholarship.
Carr and select students will receive formal recognition on Oct. 27 at the foundation’s yearly induction dinner in San Antonio. The dinner will award 36 students from 26 universities.
On May 21, Carr graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Lamar University, where he plans to continue his graduate studies.
"Receiving the Texas Business Hall of Fame Scholarship is a huge blessing for me,” Carr said. “Not only will it cover my tuition but it also has given me the motivation to succeed. I'm so honored and thankful for this award and opportunity. I could not have accomplished this without Dean Henry Venta and my College of Business professors."
The purpose of the foundation is to recognize people involved in the Texas business community. These people must show visions and potential that will make Texas one of the leaders in the modern U.S. economy.
