Jack White graduated from Howard Payne University in 1955. It was at Howard Payne, as a student, that Jack first recognized his gift for art. Through hard work and determination he matured into a Master Oil Painter. Painting portraits of such notables as President Lyndon Johnson, McDonald’s Founder Ray Kroc, Pro Basketball Star Julius “Dr. J” Irvin and Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry, Jack was awarded the title of State Artist of Texas in 1975. Through this scholarship award we honor the memory of our Alum, Jack White.
