WACO, Texas - The Davidson Family Charitable Foundation of Texas recently presented a gift of $250,000 to Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary in Waco.

The gift will establish an endowed scholarship fund for seminary students.

The Davidson Foundation, established in 1961, provides support for programs covering health services, civic needs, education and arts in Texas. The general purpose foundation was created by three brothers - H.W. Davidson, C.J. Davidson and Brooks Davidson.

Barry A. McClenahan, chair of the foundation's advisory committee, and his wife, Susan Davidson McClenahan, a member of the advisory committee, presented the check to Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. and J. Bradley Creed, dean of Truett.

"The financial needs of students attending Truett cannot be stressed strongly enough," Creed said. "We welcome this gift from the Davidson Foundation, and we look forward to working with the God-called men and women who will be able to pursue their theological education at Truett because of the Davidson scholarship."
