Tanya Whitlow started the UC Davis College of Engineering Leadership in Engineering Advancement, Diversity and Retention (LEADR) program in 2012 to provide a support group for first-generation students grounded in an advising foundation. She served as director of the program until May 2021. Chevron, one of LEADR's most loyal investors and supporters, allocated $50,000 to establish an endowed scholarship supporting LEADR students in Tanya's memory. Anyone who knew and admired Tanya, or believes in the LEADR program, is invited to invest in this scholarship.
