Andrea Smith Eads named Stripling Scholar



The Raiford Stripling Scholar for the 2005-2006 academic year was Andrea Smith Eads, who completed her master of architecture studies in May 2006, also earning a Certificate in Historic Preservation.

Eads, from Cypress, Texas, earned a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Texas A&M University in May 2004, receiving a minor in art and architectural history. She graduated Summa Cum Laude after an outstanding undergraduate career that included a semester at the Santa Chiara campus outside Florence, Italy; work experience with the university’s interior design office; and an internship with Corgan Associates in Dallas, Texas. She was earned the Thomas S. Gathright Academic Excellence Award in 2004 through publication of her work in Texas Architect magazine and Archive/B.E.D, a publication showcasing the best of undergraduate work in the Department of Architecture at Texas A&M University.

Eads’ undergraduate service career is as distinguished as her academic record. She was elected to the national Tau Sigma Delta Honor Society, served as president of the Alpha Alpha Chapter in 2003-2004, and was awarded the TSD Bronze Medal for Distinction in Student Leadership in 2004. She was active with the American Institute of Architecture Students, serving as community service co-chair in 2000-2001. She was also a leader in the Summer Honors Invitational Program in Summer 2001.

Eads was also a member of the Texas A&M University Women’s Chorus in 2003 and served as a volunteer in the Breakaway Student Ministries from 2000-2003.

She is the third Raiford Stripling Scholar, a program funded by the Texas Old Missions and Forts Restoration Association.
