The Rachal Foundation announced the establishment of the E. Richard Schendel Distinguished Professor of Practice in Residence Endowed Fellowship at the Bush School. The Fellowship honors Schendel, who is a director and treasurer of the Rachal Foundation. Acting Dean Andrew Card accepted the award from John White, chairman of the Rachal Foundation, at a luncheon held on June 29. Mr. White also read a letter from President George H. W. Bush to Mr. Schendel congratulating him on the honor.

The Foundation was established by life-long Texan, Ed Rachal. He and his wife, Louise, believed strongly in education and assisting young people; and those commitments led to the Foundation’s ongoing support of charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes in Texas.

“We are honored that the Rachal Foundation has chosen to continue their support of education through the Bush School,” said Card. “It is another strong testament to the quality of our programs, faculty, and students,” he added.
