COLLEGE STATION - Long-time farm and ranch journalist Horace McQueen and his wife, Carole, of Grapeland, have established a scholarship at Texas A&M University in hopes of "jump starting" a college degree like his was decades ago.
The Carole and Horace McQueen ‘60 Endowed Scholarship is designated for agricultural journalism majors who have financial need.
McQueen credits his Texas Cooperative Extension agent in Harris County in the 1950s with encouraging him to attend college after high school.
"By word and example, he led me to think college," said McQueen."I received two scholarships to attend Texas A&M, and I could not have attended without them."
Two events solidified his college career: He attend Extension's 4-H Roundup in College Station, and he showed a champion Brahman heifer at the Houston Livestock Show.The 4-H Roundup enabled him to meet teens from across the state and gave him a fondness for Texas A&M.The champion heifer was sold to provide money for college.
After graduation in 1960, McQueen was editor of National FFA magazine and Farm and Ranch Magazine.By 1964 he and fellow Texas A&M graduate Jack Tompkins started the Farm and Ranch TV News in Lubbock, Abilene and Big Spring.McQueen later continued the program in Tyler and Lufkin.After a 36-year broadcast career, he sold the program in 2000.The McQueens also have raised cattle and timber and been involved in real estate and oil and gas production.
"Carole and I felt it was time to ‘give back' to the institution that provided us the ‘jump start' in life," he said.
