Texas A&M-Kingsville Students Get Nearly Half of Available Awards

Nine wildlife graduate students in the College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Human Sciences at Texas A&M University-Kingsville recently received scholarships from the Houston Safari Club. The A&M-Kingsville students received nearly half of the 21 available scholarships, each valued at $4,000.

Master’s students who received the scholarship include Anna Lund of Corpus Christi; Dean Weimers of Hondo; Eric Grahmann of Victoria; Aaron Foley of Belfast, N.Y.; Jorge Lopez of Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico; and Jon Moxygemba of Luling. The master’s students earn a degree in range and wildlife science.

Doctoral candidates receiving the scholarship are John Lewis of Cookeville, Tenn.; Chad Stacey of Stephenville; and Autumn Smith, of Mt. Holly, N.J. The doctoral students earn a degree in wildlife science.

To qualify, the students had to prepare an application packet and then submit to a telephone interview. The A&M-Kingsville students impressed the scholarship judges said Dr. Fred Bryant, professor and Leroy D. Denman Jr., Director of Wildlife Research for the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute. “They were so complimentary of our students. They said our students’ packets were professional and their interviews were the best,” Bryant said.
