Bill and Tomiko Kennedy Memorial Endowed Presidential Scholarship
The seven Kennedy children bestowed the endowment in recognition of their parents’ commitment to send all their children to college, in spite of significant financial sacrifices. During a time when most Texas high school graduates did not attend college, all seven of the Kennedy children did.
Bill retired from being Postmaster in Woodsboro, Texas. Tomiko taught school for 45 years in the same town. They have been active in charitable and social organizations after retiring. They both earned their degrees from institutions other than The University of Texas, but two of their children are Texas Exes. Tomiko died on April 24, 2010 at the age of 90.
