Myers-LeCroy Scholars Endowed Scholarship
The Myers-LeCroy Scholars Endowed Scholarship was established in 1988 by Dallas College Foundation Board Member Mike A. Myers to recognize the late Dr. R. Jan LeCroy, former Chancellor of Dallas College from 1981 to 1988, for his exemplary leadership in education and in the community. Outstanding leadership and academics are two of the hallmarks of Dr. LeCroy’s tenure and are the main requirements of the Myers-LeCroy Scholars Program. Nancy LeCroy and Mike Myers are mentors to the Myers-LeCroy Scholars. The Myers-LeCroy Scholars Endowed Scholarship will fund tuition and books for 6 consecutive semesters.
Recipients of the Myers-LeCroy Scholars Endowed Scholarship are also eligible to continue their college education beyond the 6 semesters at Dallas College. Visit https://www.foundation.dcccd.edu/scholarship-and-students/event-scholarships for details.
