Irene Zercher St. Clair Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Math/Science Education
Along with her love of teaching math and science, Dr. St. Clair was a devoted and avid UT Longhorn football and baseball fan, as well as a talented pianist. Her skills at the piano gained her “honorary” membership in the once male-only Rotary Club in Mt. Vernon, Texas. She once turned down a job as a classical pianist in Dallas so she could continue teaching and taking care of her family.
Dr. St. Clair held three degrees from The University of Texas at Austin: a BA in 1930 and MA in 1934 from the College of Liberal Arts and a PhD in 1968 from the College of Education. Her son, Mr. Jimmy St. Clair II graduated with a BS in chemical engineering from The University of Texas in 1959.
