Stelos Alliance Leadership and Bill Hogue Memorial Scholarships

Honoring the leadership of students at Texas State University.


History of the Scholarships

The Bill Hogue Memorial Scholarship was established under the direction of Bill Poston following Hogue’s tragic death, which came just six weeks after his graduation from Texas State University in December 1987. 

Hogue loved Texas State and served it well as a Student Foundation officer, Cheerleader and Orientation Assistant.  He was also an active member of Kappa Alpha Fraternity and taught classes for the Catholic Student Organization.  Bill maintained this level of campus involvement while working full and part-time to pay his way through college.  This $5,000 scholarship is presented in Bill’s memory every year to a Texas University student who exhibits the enthusiastic pride in Texas State that characterized Bill’s college life.

Five $1,000 Stelos Alliance Leadership Scholarships are awarded in recognition of students’ dedicated service, loyalty, leadership and significant contributions to Texas State and their communities.  The deserving young leaders that receive these scholarships give tirelessly of themselves to enhance the Texas State experience for all students.
