On April 28, five legendary bankers were inducted into the Texas Bankers Hall of Fame during the Ninth Annual Texas Bankers Hall of Fame Gala on the campus of Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in Huntsville. These prestigious bankers—James D. “Jay” Dreibelbis, the late Robert Griffith “Bob” Greer, W. Wes Hoskins, Ben Morgan and R. Michael Rigby—were recognized for their positive achievements and many contributions to the banking industry and their communities.
The Texas Bankers Hall of Fame, established by the Smith-Hutson Endowed Chair of Banking at Sam Houston State University, recognizes and honors the accomplishments of outstanding bankers who have made valuable contributions to the banking profession and pioneered the Texas banking industry. The honorees have truly made their industry, communities and state better places.
All inductees attended the gala to accept their honor except for the late Bob Greer, who was represented by his son, Jim Greer.
Proceeds from the gala support the Sam Houston State University banking program, as well as the executive MBA scholarship, which provides $5,000 to attend the program in banking and financial institutions at SHSU.
