Jimmy Campbell ('71 B.A., Mathematics; '80 M.B.A.) values the education he received at his two alma maters-UTA and Cleburne High School. That's why he and his wife, Cathy, established the Jimmy and Cathy Campbell Endowed Scholarship fund. The gift provides four-year, half-tuition scholarships to students who are in the top 10 percent of Cleburne High School's graduating class and are pursuing bachelor's degrees in business at UTA. "Cleburne High School and UTA have both been a huge part of our lives, and prepared us for the future we enjoy now," says Campbell, regional president of Fort Worth-based Northstar Bank. "It's something Cathy and I have talked about for a long time, and is a great opportunity to give something back to the communities that gave us so much." Campbell began his career in banking as a part-time teller while still an undergraduate student. Rachel Croson, dean of the College of Business, says the scholarship will create significant value for Cleburne High School, UTA, and, most importantly, for the students whose hard work will help them earn the honor. "This scholarship demonstrates Jimmy and Cathy's vision for their communities and for advancing the educational mission of both institutions," she says. Campbell often lends his career expertise to UTA students as a guest speaker in classes. His son, Brett, is a 1997 UTA College of Business graduate.
