Dwain and Susan Aidala are Legacy Circle donors who have supported the Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund since its inception. They attended BPSF’s first fundraiser, Paint the Town Rainbow, in April 2010 and were among the first Legacy Circle recognized in 2012. Mr. and Mrs. Aidala are also the proud parents of BPSF Executive Director Heather Aidala. The on-going support we’ve received from Dwain and Susan has helped us achieve the BPSF mission to support LGBTQ students at Texas State University.
“Empathy is the mirroring of others’ experience and a desire to help in a meaningful way. We feel our donations to the Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund provide empathetic support as its scholarships enable LGBTQ recipients to excel in their life goals. We encourage you to tell others how they too can support this unique resource.”
The Aidalas believe their support truly makes a difference in the lives of LGBTQ students. When they hear stories about who the scholarship recipients are and how the scholarship contributes to their personal and professional goals, their belief is reaffirmed.
The BPSF board truly appreciates having such loyal and supportive donors. The tremendous support that has come from the Texas State University and San Marcos communities will continue to sustain this fund.
There’s an inspiring feeling that comes from knowing our scholars continue to advance their education and create new opportunities for their lives. Joseph Flores, Spring 2011 Academic Achievement scholar, has begun his first semester as a law student at South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas.
Joseph was awarded one of the initial two Academic Achievement scholarship awards from the Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund while he was in his junior year as a political science and geography double major at Texas State University. Joseph completed his bachelor’s degree from Texas State in May 2013.
We’re excited to see that Joseph has not only graduated from Texas State University, but is pursuing an advanced degree in a field for which he holds a passion.
