The Cavan S. Tubbs BET Scholarship
On May 10, 2003, my son, Cavan Scott Tubbs, graduated summa cum laude from Auburn University with a bachelor's degree in MIS. Cavan was in the Business Engineering Technology (BET) program. Cavan went on to receive a master's in systems engineering from the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, CA. When Cavan died November 7, 2005, his new wife's uncle started a scholarship in Cavan's name at Auburn University. Many friends and family contributed to this scholarship (and continue to do so). It has become an endowment now after it reached the $25,000 mark. I just received information about the new recipient of the Cavan S. Tubbs BET Scholarship. I want to wish Chance Tara a lot of success in his college and working career in engineering.
