Paul J. and Jane Meyer of Waco gave a $100,000 endowed scholarship to the Hankamer School of Business Accounting Department. The scholarship will benefit students who are accounting majors and is based on financial need.

The Dr. Delton L. Chesser Passport To Success (PTS) Accounting Scholarship is given in honor of Chesser.
