In addition to sharing his extensive knowledge and time with students, Doug and his wife, Teresa, made the generous decision to create a scholarship for Aggie aerospace engineering students through a donor-advised fund. Their gift is intended for juniors or seniors who have or are pursuing a pilot’s license or are members of the Texas Flying Club, a flight school in Bryan, Texas. The scholarship celebrates the Pearsons’ Aggie and aviation connections shared not only by Doug and Todd but also by Doug’s daughter, Becky ’00, who enjoys flying with her dad as often as she can.
“I hope there’s someone out there with a public service mindset who needs a little extra help to finish school,” Doug explained. “We’ve experienced a lot of blessings and full-circle moments, so it’s only natural that we do everything we can to keep the cycle going to help the next Aggies in aerospace.”
