The Lamar University Foundation established the Terry Lynn Daniels Memorial Scholarship endowed by his children, Gary and Jennifer Cruse, and Diane Daniels.

“The cost of a four-year college degree can be a detrimental factor for a student who wants to take a full-time course of study,” said Robert Yuan, chair of Lamar University’s civil engineering department. “A scholarship can be the deciding factor in the success of a very capable student who just needs some economic assistance.”

Terry Lynn Daniels grew up in Kountze and graduated from Lamar University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering.  He worked in the family-owned business, Daniels Building & Construction, Inc. from junior high until the time of his death. Evidence of his talents can be seen in the many schools, hospitals, business buildings, and churches built by Daniels Building & Construction.

His passion for life was exhibited through his love for family and friends, his church and his love for tennis, golf, hunting and traveling.

The bachelor of engineering degree from the Lamar University Department of Civil Engineering prepares graduates for people-serving professions that vital to the world’s economic, political and social well being. Graduates of Lamar University’s civil engineering program are employed in construction, telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation, architectural businesses and government agencies.
