Brenda Elrod TTU Student Educational Scholarship Endowment
In 1990, Brenda Elrod conceived the idea of having TTU employees help with the funding for a scholarship. She wanted more help for some of the many students she saw daily in the Financial Aid Office who needed additional financial assistance to stay in school. She worked with University Advancement and Human Resources to put processes in place for employees to contribute through payroll deductions. She asked faculty and staff to pledge a minimum of $1 per month to fund this scholarship. As a result of her efforts, hundreds of employees pledged, and many continue to support this scholarship today. In recognition of Brenda's leadership in developing this scholarship for deserving students and upon her retirement after 34 years of service to TTU, the scholarship has been renamed the Brenda Elrod TTU Student Educational Scholarship.
