Fred Russell Strategic Enrollment Management Scholarship

The TACRAO Fred RusselI Strategic Enrollment Management scholarship was named for Dr. Fred Russell, who in 1982 was the youngest president to have served the 50+ year-old association. During his membership, Fred also served as TACRAO Newsletter editor.

Fred was a leader in our association and mentored many TACROANS during his service at Texas Wesleyan University and East Texas State University (Texas A&M-Commerce), from 1975 to 1994. With great sadness, Fred passed away in 1996, while serving as Dean of Enrollment Management at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville. This scholarship is designed to encourage further professional development in the association by members who may be future leaders active in TACRAO.
