Bobby Stillwell '56 Celebrated as Tau Man 2014
University of Texas System Regent Robert L. "Bobby" Stillwell '56 was honored as the 2014 Tau Man of the Year on November 8 at the Kappa Sigma Lodge.
More than 350 Kappa Sig brothers and family members attended the brunch celebration to honor Regent Stillwell, where he was lauded by Tau brothers Dan Burck '51, Bill Norman '58, Robert Spellings '60, Ford Smith '58, and Nash Horne '10 for his outstanding contributions to the Tau Chapter and the UT System.
"Bob has served on the UT Board of Regents for almost six years now, during one of the most turbulent periods in the history of UT Austin," said Dan Burck, a former UT System Chancellor. "In the face of some misguided and rogue regents, Bob has held firm in his support of the delivery of the highest quality education for the students at UT Austin. We all owe Bob a debt of gratitude for his unwavering support during these difficult times. Thank you, Bobby."
Nash Horne, who served as Student Regent on the Board of Regents from June 2013 to May 2014, spoke with admiration of Stillwell's gracious manner and skilled leadership. "He is a true servant of the UT System and it is through his service that so much has been accomplished," Horne said.
Appointed to the Board of Regents in 2009, Stillwell serves as Chairman of the Health Affairs Committee. He also serves on the board of The University of Texas Investment Management Company (UTIMCO), is a Regental representative to the M.D. Anderson Services Corporation Board of Directors, serves on the Texas Medical Center's Board of Directors and is an Athletics Liaison.
He has served on UT Austin's Task Force on University Excellence and Productivity and the Longhorn Foundation Advisory Council Executive Committee.
As a trustee of the T. Boone Pickens Foundation, Stillwell helped direct $700 million of educational, scientific, and health care gifts to nonprofit organizations, including gifts to UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Dallas.
Stillwell earned a Bachelor's degree in Business from UT Austin in 1959 and a Juris Doctor from UT Austin School of Law in 1961.
He and his wife, Gail, have five grown children: Cathy Stillwell, Susan Barrow, Bobby Jr, Kevin Knight, and Laurie Knight (plus several spouses) and seven grandchildren. The four oldest grandchildren are students at UT Austin.
Tau Open to Celebrate 30-Year Anniversary in 2015
Next spring will mark 30 years since Kappa Sigma's first Tau Open was held in 1985. The tournament is scheduled to return to Lakeway's Yaupon and Live Oak golf courses next year on April 17 and 18.
We hope to make this a very special event by recognizing those who helped start this wonderful tradition that has been enjoyed by hundreds of Kappa Sigs over the years. We will also add a new twist to next year's Tau Open with an invitation to Kappa Sig wives or girlfriends to participate as members of foursomes.
Please mark your calendar for what promises to be a fun and memorable Kappa Sig weekend.
