Ed and Susan Komandosky

Ed and Susan Komandosky

College Donors


Ed and Susan Komandosky have had the opportunity to watch Texas State develop from the relatively small college it was in the 1960s when they graduated into the large university it is today. Susan spent 32 years putting her journalism education training to use teaching high school journalism. Ed used his journalism training throughout his career, first in the newspaper business and later as Public Information Officer for the Texas National Guard. 

“We were both the first in our families to attend college and because of that experience we understand what a difference a good education can make in the life of a person. The undergraduate degrees we earned at Texas State University set us on the path for our future careers. We believe that it is important to pay it forward and help other young people afford a college education.”

Señor Cicero A. Rust

College Donor


Señor Cicero A. Rust III, a resident of Blanco, earned his Bachelor of Science in Spanish in 1972, followed by his Master of Arts in Spanish in 1973. The endowment for mariachi scholarships was created in honor of former members of the Rio Pedernales Chapter of La Sociedad Honoraria Hispanica at LBJ High School in Johnson City, Texas, the English Club members at Floresville High School in Floresville, Texas, and his former fifth grade Sunday school students at the First Baptist Church in Blanco, Texas.

“Texas State University equipped me to relish a perfectly blessed teaching career instructing Spanish and English. I also fondly remember the night mariachis serenaded Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson in 1960 at a political rally at Blanco State Park; my love of mariachi music was solidified that evening. My heart is blessed by the preservation of the Mariachi tradition at Texas State.”

Daymon and Pat Muehl

College Donors


My husband’s life started at a small family Texas farm where German was the only language spoken. His economics degree from Texas State allowed him to progress to being the advertising director with one of the world’s largest corporations (now Exxon Mobil).  A small inheritance allowed Daymon to attend Texas State Teachers College, and he wanted to give others the same opportunity to reach their dreams.  

“Daymon made sure he donated every year starting with his first paycheck. The trait that attracted me to him is that he always wanted to help others, not only financially but in many other ways. He made it possible for me to carry out his wishes after he passed away in 2013. I have enjoyed so many arts events at Texas State, and I am grateful to be able to support fine arts students at his alma mater.”
