Truman T. Bell
Truman had an incredible forty-five plus year work career that included university student services, industry human resources, corporate recruiting, public affairs and foundation administration. In his early career, he served as Director of Student Financial Aid and Placement at his beloved alma mater, Tarleton State University and as Director of Career Services at Texas Tech University.
Truman then spent 37 years at ExxonMobil working various assignments. His most recent role included serving as the Headquarters Community Relations Manager, stewarding local community investments and Diversity and Education programs for the Corporation and the ExxonMobil Foundation. He was an influencer helping to guide critical decisions particularly as it related to STEM education programs and initiatives to improve career opportunities for women and minorities.

Truman was the Texas Science and Engineering Fair’s best friend and helped keep it going for years. He is greatly missed.
