2020 Scholarship Breakfast Virtual Event

9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Virtual Event

The UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management Scholarship Breakfast was established in 2009 with two missions: to offer a forum for discussing relevant business issues and to support the educational goals of UT Dallas students - the next generation of business leaders. The breakfast has raised $825,000 and funded nearly 500 new scholarship awards for Jindal School students.

Fred Perpall, CEO of The Beck Group, will speak at the virtual breakfast this year on the critical role of scholarships for increased and shared prosperity in Dallas. Perpall has developed his leadership philosophy during his 21-year tenure at Beck and through his experience with civic organizations, ministries and athletics. A native of Nassau, Perpall played on the 1994 Bahamas national basketball team and came to North Texas to pursue Division I basketball and a degree in architecture. He currently chairs the Dallas Citizens Council and co-chairs Dallas Forward, an online resource initiative of Mayor Eric Johnson’s COVID-19 economic recovery task force.
