New scholarship to benefit environmental
design and construction science students


Stephen Rinard '64 and his wife Carillon have endowed a scholarship fund at Texas A&M's College of Architecture in honor of his parents, Clarence and Mabel Wharton Rinard.

Rinard, who earned a bachelor's degree in meteorology at Texas A&M, has established the fund to benefit Corps of Cadets students in the departments of architecture and construction science.

“Our college has the advantage of having the natural, built and virtual environments under one roof, and this scholarship will encourage our students to work to the best of their abilities," said Jorge Vanegas, dean of the college.

After graduating from Kansas State College's Department of Architecture in 1931, Clarence Rinard established an architecture firm in San Antonio, specializing in church, office and business buildings.

Mabel Wharton Rinard was an early pioneer as a student in the Department of Architecture at Kansas State College until 1931.

The scholarship will provide vital financial support to motivate, encourage and reward students who have a desire to fully develop their professional potential, said Glen Mills, head of the Department of Architecture, and Joe Horlen, head of the Department of Construction Science.

Graduate students who served in the Corps of Cadets for four years as undergraduates are also eligible for the scholarship. If the corps membership requirement can't be fulfilled, active members of the Singing Cadets are eligible.

If a qualified student cannot be identified in the Department of Architecture, the scholarship will be awarded to a junior level or above corps member in the Department of Construction Science interested in pursuing construction as a profession.

Preference will be given to residents of Texas or Kansas.
