Dallas Area Veterinarian, Hill College Graduate Establishes $10,000 Scholarship Endowment

06.08.15

Dr. Troy Cobb, a 1986 graduate of Hill College, recently made the conscious decision to give back to his first alma mater by establishing a $10,000 scholarship endowment. Named after him, the Troy Cobb Scholarship Endowment was created to support students at Hill College who are interested in pursuing a degree in a science-related field.

“Hill College has a friendly environment and I always felt supported,” said Cobb. “I wanted to give other students the same opportunities because I believe the professors at Hill College were truly vested in my success. Individuals like Drs. Treadwell and Parker, and Colonel Simpson made a huge impact on my academic experience at Hill.”

Dr. Cobb completed his Associate of Science Degree before moving on to Texas A&M University College Station, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1988 and finished his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. He grew up on a farm in Grandview, Texas, raising chickens and cows with his family, so an interest in animal science was a natural fit. While at Hill College, Cobb was a member of the Baptist Student Ministries and Phi Theta Kappa.

Director of Development, Dr. Jasmine Collier was elated about Dr. Cobb’s decision to make a contribution to Hill College. “With limited funding opportunities, it is important for people to support Hill College. Yet, it is extremely special when an alum decides they want to give back to a place that helped them be successful,” said Dr. Collier.
