Roberto Montoya Military Support Fund Established
KINGSVILLE (October 15, 2012) — Texas A&M University-Kingsville is pleased to announce
that the Roberto Montoya Military Science Support Fund has been established by VRC
Corporation in the university’s College of Business Administration. The fund was established
with an initial gift of $25,000 with annual gifts following to build the endowment to $100,000
over the next five years.
The Roberto Montoya Military Science Support Fund will support the work of the College of
Business Administration dean and college-wide initiatives. More specifically, the fund may be
used to support such activities as student recruitment and retention, program development and
growth, community outreach, technology, curriculum innovation and quality assessment,
professional development and research and scholarly activities.
The Fund is named for Robert Montoya, a 1970 business management graduate from Texas
A&I University. He also received a M.A. in political science and international relations from the
University of Kansas and a M.S. in systems management and information systems from the
University of Southern California. Montoya spent more than 20 years as an officer in the U.S.
Army serving in Armor, Calvary and joint staff assignments. He then joined VRC Corporation
in 1992 where he began working as an operations analyst. Finding success, he was promoted to
project manager (1995), Chief Operations Officer (2000), President (2005) and CEO (2007-
present). Under his leadership VRC has increased its net earnings an average of 17% per year
since 2006. Investment of cost savings into business development resulted in long-term
contracts that have helped increase the organization’s assessed value by 500% (according to an
estimate made in 2010).
VRC supports the evaluation and assessments of military systems that are acquired by the
Department of Defense. According to the company’s website, the Virginia-based company has
been in business since 1977.
