WE ARE ADVOCATES FOR THE FUTURE
WE ARE ADVANCING PEOPLE AND INDUSTRY
2022 Scholarships NOW OPEN
TEXO Foundation raises funds to support the construction industry through the generous support of our TEXO members. Our goal is that, through university support via scholarships and grants, high quality employees will be attracted to the Dallas/Fort Worth construction market.
Students are encouraged to apply for the scholarships on an annual basis. After receiving the applications, TEXO Foundation reviews the applications and determines which students will receive an opportunity to interview for a scholarship. Many factors weigh into the decision of awarding scholarships, and we take time to visit with the candidates in a virtual panel-style interview.

What Our Members are Saying
I’m a new member of the H&G Systems Systems team, and our group hasn’t been involved with TEXO previously. TEXO clearly cares about the wellbeing of the local contracting community, and I’ve enjoyed leaning on the TEXO team as we’ve worked to improve several of our processes. Also, at one of our TEXO events, I heard Russ Garrison talk about how being involved with TEXO allows the smaller contractors to be at the table with the larger contractors regarding all of the key issues that impact our businesses. That concept fits with our team perfectly, because we desire to be relevant and impactful, but not too large.
TEXO’s affiliation with the two largest construction industry associations, ABC and AGC, gives it a loud and powerful voice to advocate at the local, state, and national levels and influence legislation and regulation that affect the bottom line of my business.
TEXO helps equip our people, inform our management team, and make us more competitive. All of these give us the ability to provide our clients with the best construction experience.
Affiliation with TEXO has provided Cadence McShane many benefits within our organization. It gives us a combined voice with other members on matters such as government issues from not only local platforms but all the way up to the federal level. Safety practices are openly shared for the betterment of all, and the training programs benefit the industry as a whole by providing topics for all levels from the trades, to up and coming younger management, as well as fine tuning the skills of more seasoned professionals.
