New aviation program gains media attention

Texas Woman’s received a lot of news coverage after regents approved a new aviation program for the university during their May board meeting.

Chancellor Carine Feyten was interviewed by the Denton Record-Chronicle as well as KRLD and CBS 11 (log in to Google with your TWU credentials to view.)

Chancellor Feyten and Regent Stacie McDavid were quoted in a Dallas Morning News story about the gift that launched the aviation school. (Subscription may be required to read.)

Kimberly Russell, EdD (University Advancement) shared the news with NBCDFW, and a May 16 story in the Denton Record-Chronicle, “TWU wants to be the go-to for the next generation of pilots with new aviation school and program,” included comments from Provost O. Finley Graves, PhD, Christopher Johnson (Chancellor’s Office), Regents Jill Jester and Crystal Wright, MD, and Matt Flores (Marketing & Communication).

The Chronicle of Philanthropy included a mention of the $15 million Doswell Foundation gift as the lead item in its regular roundup of gifts in the May 24 issue.
