Former student honored for years of
community service in Brazos Valley


The Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley is honoring a former student from Texas A&M’s College of Architecture and his wife for their many years of service to the area’s civic causes.

Jim Singleton, who earned a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Design and a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Construction in 1968, and his wife, realist artist and photographer Stephanie Sale, will be honored by the foundation in the College Station Hilton at 11:30 a.m. March 10 at the seventh annual Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley Tribute Luncheon, sponsored by The Bank & Trust of Bryan/College Station.

The foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the region through the development of philanthropic giving, responsible grant making, professional stewardship and collaborative leadership.

After graduating from Texas A&M with a commission from the Corps of Cadets, Singleton served in Vietnam as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot. After his military service, his career in architecture took him to Dallas, Longview and Irving before he returned to Bryan/College Station in 1998.

SIngleton practices general architecture, including medical buildings, banks, office buildings and shopping centers, and has completed more than 200 school projects in Texas.

Singleton’s public service includes:

  • director, Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial;
  • member of the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation Directors’ Circle;
  • leadership council member of the Research Valley Partnership;
  • member, Chamber of Commerce Facilities Committee;
  • member, Decent Affordable Safe Housing Committee;
  • member, Directors of the Boys and Girls Club;
  • past board member, Brazos Valley Symphony Society.

Sale graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Skidmore College in 1968 and went to New York, working as a fashion model, an account consultant for Revlon and an independent graphic artist.

Since returning to Bryan in 1994, Sale has volunteered for many local organizations and committees.
