Biology professor to raise funds for scholarship

Dr. Blake Bextine, an associate biology professor at UT Tyler, is participating in the 2012 Cowtown UltraMarathon to raise funds for a UT Tyler scholarship.
An endurance athlete, Bextine will participate on Sunday, Feb. 26 in Fort Worth in support of the Dr. Darrell W. Pogue Memorial Scholarship, benefiting undergraduate biology students.
“Darrell was my best friend and mentor in the department prior to his 2007 death, which resulted from a terminal brain tumor. After his death, the family set up this scholarship for donations in lieu of flowers. Since it is not an endowed scholarship, I want to keep it going,” said Bextine.
Any pledges he receives for each mile completed during the 31-mile marathon will benefit the student scholarship fund, 100 percent, he added.
This is Bextine’s fourth time to participate in the race.
For more information, contact Bextine, 903.566.7323 or bbextine@uttyler.edu, or visit cowtownmarathon.org.
