Mr. George E. Tubb was dedicated to the promotion of shooting sports. This Canadian, Texas, rancher was the Texas Ambassador to the Shooting World. This native Texan and war hero served his nation and the people of Texas with distinction. He was President of the Texas State Rifle Association, a Director of the National Rifle Association, a Distinguished Rifleman, A High Master in High-power Rifles, and a member of eight U.S. Palma teams that competed internationally. In addition, he was a highly decorated World War II veteran. He was inducted into the Army from the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets and was a battle-tested Infantry Company Commander at the age of twenty. He loved his family, God, ranching, his country, and shooting sports. George was a true American patriot. This scholarship was established at the main Campus of Texas A&M University to memorialize George Tubb’s contributions to the Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA), the National Rifle Association, and shooting sports worldwide. TSRA expects scholarship recipients to continue the Tubb tradition of promoting shooting sports. Applicants for the Tubb Memorial Scholarships must be students that Texas A&M has accepted, will be registered as a full-time student at the College Station campus, and are TSRA members.
