Robert Parker

Without the leadership and petroleum engineering background of UT PGE Distinguished Alumnus Robert L. Parker, Sr., the world we know today could look a lot different. Parker's time on campus was short, but his global impact is immeasurable.

Richard and Lois Folger

Texas Exes have plenty of ways to stay connected to their alma mater, from socializing with fellow alums to supporting favorite academic programs to cheering on the Texas Longhorns. Life Members Lois and Richard Folger of Midland like to do all of the above, with gusto.

Scott Sheffield

In the 1990s, most of the major oil and gas companies in this country divested domestic assets and moved resources to the international arena, believing that oil fields in the United States were all drilled up. UT PGE alumnus Scott Sheffield was not so sure.

Brian James Jennings

In the spring of 2012, UT PGE lost a remarkable alumnus, Brian Jennings (BSPE ’84), at the young age of 52. He made quite an impact on the Forty Acres as a petroleum engineering student and alumnus - he stayed involved with the department as an industry advisor through the external advisory committee to ensure UT PGE students were well-prepared for the energy sector.
