Fred Russell Strategic Enrollment Management Scholarship

The TACRAO Fred Russel I 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.
