William C. Hearn '63 Student Development Endowment

As the sea has influenced our campus since its inception so, too, has Mr. William C. “Bill” Hearn ’63 influenced the students, faculty and staff of Texas A&M University at Galveston over his more than thirty-three years of service.  The retirement of Bill Hearn in January of 2008 marked the end of an era that fostered unprecedented growth in all aspects of campus life from student affairs to facilities expansion to the largest enrollment ever.

His retirement ceremony included a demonstration by the Texas A&M Maritime Academy Corp. of Cadets Honor Guard, presentations by Former Students, the reading of Proclamations from local, state and federal officials and an official kickoff of the:

Sea Aggie Walkway and William C. Hearn ’63 Student Development Endowment Campaign

The first brick to be laid in the new walkway was dedicated to Bill.  Proceeds from the current brick campaign, along with the proceeds from bricks and benches already purchased by Former Students, friends of TAMUG, current students, faculty and staff perpetuate the endowment.  The walkway and endowment will serve as an enduring legacy of Bill’s countless contributions to the development of student leadership at TAMUG.  Your contributions to the endowment will serve as a permanent means of supporting the programs and leadership opportunities for students cultivated by Bill over his career.

Four-by-eight-inch bricks may be purchased for $100 per brick.  Take advantage of your corporate matching program to double, triple or quadruple the amount of your contribution to this endowment campaign.
