Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr.

Boschini, who became Texas Christian University’s chancellor in 2003, has been instrumental in the growth and development of the university. From the new Brown-Lupton University Union and the establishment of the John V. Roach Honors College to membership in the Big 12 Conference and the collaborative venture with the University of North Texas Health Science Center to create a new school of medicine in Fort Worth, Boschini’s legacy is one of innovation and building, with a focus on people and programs. As the newest Golden Deeds recipient, he joins a long list of familiar names, including, Amon G. Carter, for whom TCU’s football stadium is named, Head Football Coach Gary Patterson, as well as Ed Schollmaier, the namesake of Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.

At the recognition dinner held May 1, two former chairmen of the TCU Board of Trustees, John V. Roach and J. Luther King, Jr. spoke to Boschini’s many contributions.

Beyond the borders of campus, Boschini is an active member of the Fort Worth community, serving on the boards of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Van Cliburn Foundation and the Moncrief Cancer Institute, among others. Together with his wife, Megan, he is committed to making a positive impact both personally and professionally.

The Fort Worth Exchange Club is the local chapter of the National Exchange Club, a business and professional men’s and women’s service organization.
