Alumni Establish James E. Pullen Memorial Endowed Scholarship FundMay 22, 2003
Accounting alumni E.J ('84) and Jill P. Bird ('84) have established the James E. Pullen Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund in memory of Jill's father, James E. Pullen. This scholarship provides tuition assistance to worthy students majoring in either accounting or finance.
James Pullen was a proponent a Christian education and of working hard to better one's self. His successes in business, as a sales executive in the food service industry, and his family life were based on his own work ethic and his genuine Christian concern for those around him. The Birds, joined by their children Zack and Mason and Jill's mother and sister, were on campus in April for the presentation of the scholarship. The Department is grateful to the Birds for their commitment to Baylor's accounting program.
