Scholarship Created In Memory of Davis
Recently, Tim Aiken, President and Chief Executive Officer of Union Bank, presented a $10,000 donation to the Gary R. Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund, in memory of long-time Tyler Community Banker Gary R. Davis. Davis’ children, Jeff and Kimberly Hensley, accepted the contribution.
Gary Davis, who passed away on March 16, 2018, was the former Chairman, President, and CEO of Union Bank from 1974-2003.
The scholarship to be established will be an annual scholarship awarded to a deserving Tyler Consolidated High School senior who will be seeking a degree in a business-related field. The scholarship will be administered by a soon-to-be-established committee which will consist of: an executive officer of Union Bank; a representative of the Davis family; and a representative of Tyler County Schools. Memorial contributions to the Gary R. Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund will continue to be accepted at any Union Bank office.
