Walter B. Cooper logo

Walter B. Cooper was an advisor for the Alpha Gamma Pi chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Austin Community College in Austin, Texas. The memories of Mr. Cooper’s efforts within and outside of Phi Theta Kappa are still visible today every time his name is mentioned. Mr. Cooper advised students how to become well-rounded individuals in each of the Society’s hallmarks. It is with this concept in mind that the Texas Region Alumni Association presents this scholarship in memory of Walter B. Cooper.
