Ronald and Anna Lee Haddox of Baytown have established a new scholarship through their gift to the Lamar University Foundation. The Ronald and Anna Lee Haddox Scholarship will provide funds for business majors.
“We are grateful for the support of Ronn and Anna Lee Haddox,” said Enrique “Henry” Venta, dean of the College of Business. “In these difficult times, scholarships are even more important to enable our students to complete their degrees.” Born in Brenham, Ronald “Ronn” Dennis Haddox attended Lamar and was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. While a student at Lamar, he met Anna Lee Dunn of Beaumont, a member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority. Ronn graduated in 1964 with a bachelor of business administration degree in management, and Anna Lee graduated the same year with a bachelor’s degree in home economics.
Ronn earned a juris doctorate in 1970 from the South Texas College of Law and pursued his career as a lawyer.Today, he is in private law practice in Baytown. Anna Lee was a homemaking teacher for 10 years and retired when the children, Jason Haddox and LeAnne Redwine, went to college.
Ronn is involved in several civic and professional organizations in the Baytown and Houston Communities. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Baytown, a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, chairman of the Baytown Industrial District Appraisal Board and a regent for the Lee College board of regents (former secretary).
