Outstanding alumna establishes new
construction science endowment


Helen Keaton ’85, an outstanding alumna of Texas A&M’s College of Architecture, and her husband, Glen, recently endowed a new scholarship benefiting students pursuing an undergraduate degree in construction science.

Keaton, who earned a Bachelor of Building Construction degree at Texas A&M and who currently serves as vice-president of estimating and preconstruction services for Joeris General Contractors in San Antonio, was recognized as an outstanding alumna in October 2010. By overseeing Joeris projects from concept development to the bid process, she has helped Joeris become the San Antonio area’s second-largest contractor with a yearly volume of $250 million.

Keaton has twice been recognized as an outstanding project manager by the American Subcontractor Association and has served as the Associated General Contractors’ San Antonio chapter president.

“Her personal involvement has consistently been the key to our success in positive project outcomes,” said Don Ryden, vice president of capital management and real estate for the Baptist Health System, a Joeris client. “Her astute knowledge of the construction sciences and problem solving ability are great assets to her clients.”
