Shawn Crisp PIONEER DONOR When enrolling at The University of Tulsa, Shawn Crisp (BSBA '06, MBA '08) knew that attending college would make a lasting impact on his life. What he didn't anticipate, however, was that through the help of TU, the lasting impact he would make on the lives of others. H ailing from a small town in rural Oklahoma, Shawn Crisp grew up with many friends who were unable to attend college. This fact always bothered Crisp, as he realized the profound effect attending The University of Tulsa had in providing a springboard from which he launched his career. With a bachelor's degree in marketing and an MBA, both from TU, Crisp recognized that while a college degree isn't required for a successful life, a properly leveraged degree opens many more doors and provides opportunities that some of his hometown friends had never dreamed were possible. A CPA and newly appointed vice president at Trust Company of Oklahoma, Crisp decided that if a financial burden was preventing those at home from achieving a higher education, he would do all in his power to help. By creating an endowed scholarship as a Pioneer Donor, Crisp could help provide the same support he received from The University of Tulsa. The scholarship bearing Crisp's name is intended to aid business students of any major, with a preference for TU students graduating from high school classes of 200 or fewer students. When asked what he hopes to see come out of future business students, Crisp explained that he looks forward to seeing history repeat itself. CRISP'S message to students "I hope you will continue the legacy of those who have come before you. Look at what alumni of the Collins College of Business have achieved and recognize that future and recent graduates have some big shoes to fill."
