Katherine Davis's Fundraising Page
Dear Friends & Family,
Please join me in helping to reach my fundraising goal for
the Legacy Council for the Darrell K Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer’s
My family has a long legacy of attendance, excellence, and leadership
at The University of Texas. My grandfather, Louis Arthur Beecherl Jr, served as
Chairman of the UT Board of Regents. My close ties to the university even date
back to my distant relative, Professor Robert Lee Moore. Since then I have had
over 20 close family members graduate from UT.
My grandfather and my great uncle battled Alzheimer’s the
last phase of their life. Even though my grandfather's memory weakened, the memories I shared with him and the lasting impression he made upon me will last me a lifetime. One of my favorite things is sharing stories about "Chief", and and I am honored to be a part of his legacy, UT's legacy, and the legacy to fight against the disease.
I graduated from University of Texas in 2010 with a degree
in petroleum engineering. After graduating, I moved to Houston to work for
ExxonMobil. Today, my career finds me back in my hometown of Dallas where I am
President of BV Energy Partners.
