This past Saturday, October 1, at the Arkansas/Texas A&M Southwest Classic football game, Tillman Military Scholars Chris Grisham (Arkansas) and Frank Cisneros (Texas A&M) were honored on the field at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, receiving a standing ovation from both Aggie and Razorback fans.
Chris and Frank were joined on the field during the second quarter by University of Arkansas Chancellor G. David Gearhart, Texas A&M University President Dr. R. Bowen Loftin and Pat Tillman Foundation Director of Programs Hunter I Riley. As the largest jumbotron in the world flashed a view of Scott Medlock’s “Tribute to Pat Tillman” and the Foundation logo, the 65,000 plus audience united in an standing ovation.
Chris proudly represented the seventeen Arkansas Tillman Military Scholars, while Frank represented the eight Texas A&M Tillman Military Scholars. In all, 171 Tillman Military Scholars are attending universities across the country.
