TLU aviation program receives financial boost
SEGUIN -- The new aviation program at Texas Lutheran University (TLU) recently received a major boost from alumnus Harold T. Johnson. The $500,000 donation establishes an endowed professorship in aviation and pre-engineering. The funds will assist the university in attracting and retaining highly qualified faculty to teach academic courses supporting the newly established aeronautical science and aviation management programs.
“There is a growing need for highly skilled college graduates in the field of aviation and we think TLU can help fill that need,” said Dr. Stuart Dorsey, TLU president.
A retired aeronautical engineer, Johnson received his associate degree from Texas Lutheran and his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. The El Campo native is a retired pilot and has enjoyed traveling the world. The former TLU development board member first began the endowed scholarship in 1998 to provide financial assistance for students.
