The Emmons Family Scholarship
The Emmons Family Scholarship supports students enrolled in the James I. Perkins College of Education or Nelson Rusche College of Business who also are members of an Interfraternity council or Panhellenic sorority.
The scholarship was endowed by Julie (Bulnes) and Ryan Emmons. Julie received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from SFA and was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority. She continued her education at Sam Houston State University, receiving her master’s degree in counseling. She is employed as an elementary school counselor.
Ryan received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting from SFA, and he was a member of the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity. He is a CPA working in the energy sector.
Ryan and Julie met at SFA and immensely benefited from the experiences and relationships each built in the classroom and through cultural and social activities offered through the university. They endowed the scholarship to show their appreciation to SFA and “pay it forward” to future Lumberjacks.
