Spence and Nance Endowed Scholarship Honoring Michael Monsoor

Charles & Carolyn Spence, James & Kathryn (Spence) Nance, and William (Spence) & Edith Nance Endowed Scholarship comes from a family whose wish it is to recognize an outstanding RecSports student employee in honor of the late United States Navy Seal Michael Monsoor. William Nance was an integral part of the successful Phi Gamma Delta intramural flag football teams in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He and his family are proud to be able to give back to students involved with the UT RecSports program with this award. All candidates for this award must satisfy at least one of the following requirements:

  • A veteran of the United States military, with preference to anyone who was honorably discharged from service.
  • Enrolled in any ROTC (Reserve Officers Training Corps) program
  • Committed to post graduate military training and/or service
  • A child of a veteran satisfying the first criteria above
Special thanks to the friends listed below for their generous gifts.
