exes’ director gets new post
executive director and CEO of the Ex-Students’ Association, also known as the Texas Exes, announced this week that he will step down in December to lead the newly formed Texas Exes Scholarship Foundation.
Under Boon, the Texas Exes developed Longhorn Village, a retirement community in Steiner Ranch; secured exclusive rights to sell UT class rings; launched the UT Heritage Society; and expanded its legislative advocacy program. His new charge is to raise $150 million to support 300 full-ride, merit-based scholarships for the foundation’s 40 Acres Scholars Program. He has raised $22 million so far.
