Invaluable Business Trip: St. Philip’s College’s 2017 Whataburger Scholar Jeannie Gusme attends Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation ceremony

A St. Philip's College online business student who earned a $15,000 award for entrepreneurship has returned a changed person after attending a once-in-a-lifetime event hosted by the business foundation that rewarded her and other rising college students who are sparking, designing, launching or running a new small business.

The award of $15,000 received by college business administration student and entrepreneur Jeannie Gusme was The Whataburger Scholarship endowed for 2014-2018 through the Texas Business Hall of Fame Foundation by Tom Dobson, owner of Whataburger. The foundation focuses awareness on the positive achievements made by outstanding business legends, and contributions to the foundation’s scholarship endowment program play a key role in the growth and health of future Texas communities. Gusme was the college's fourth recipient of The Whataburger Scholarship, in an era when the Hall of Fame leadership has ceremonially inducted such icons as Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chairman Warren Buffett (2017), Berkshire Hathaway Inc. vice chairman Charles Munger (2017) and Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly (2017) into its Hall of Fame.

Gusme experienced transformational moment-after-moment while attending the foundation’s 35th annual induction luncheon for scholarship recipients Nov. 1 Dallas.

“The event was magnificent! It was a little overwhelming, as I don't think I quite understood the caliber of this event until I was there,” said Gusme. “There were a lot of big wigs in business there, and to be able to hear from some of the biggest names in business... it was crazy!” Gusme said.

“It was such a learning experience. We got to hear from the Texas Business Hall of Fame Legend inductees on a panel during our luncheon. The information shared was invaluable,” Gusme shared.

“It was a very humbling trip as well; to even be considered, much less chosen for such an honor, and I just have no more words,” said Gusme.

“My favorite thing was probably just the knowledge gained. I wouldn't have had the chance to be in the same room as these Legends, much less hear their wise words, if I hadn't been awarded this opportunity. The entire experience was the best moment--and it's definitely something that I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life. Again, I can't thank God and St Philip’s College enough for this wonderful chance of a lifetime,” said Gusme.
