Three Amigos

In 1997 the DSVC decided to start a scholarship fund that would continue in the spirit of its Dick Sloan college scholarship. Giving new scholarships to deserving local high school seniors entering into the creative arts as their college major. First teed up in October 1998, the main vehicle to raise money for this scholarship was known as the annual D.C. Stipp Memorial Golf Tournament. (1998-2012)

D.C. Stipp Memorial Scholarship

The original scholarship award funded by the golf tournament was named in the memory of a beloved member of our DFW creative community, D.C. Stipp. His inspirational personal life and illustrious career with RBMM was a true role model for young and old. It was very fitting to remember D.C. as a creative man so loved by his family and friends by doing something else he loved a great deal, and did so well. Playing golf.

In 2013 the DSVC teamed up with the DREAM Fund to continue the fundraising golf event to benefit both organizations. The annual tournament name was changed to the annual DSVC DREAM Drive.

Chris Rovillo Memorial Scholarship

The DSVC Foundation added a new scholarship award in 2013 to honor another beloved member of our creative community. Chris Rovillo touched many lives during his distinguished design career. A career that spanned from Neiman Marcus to the design arm of the Richards Group before eventually founding Rovillo Design Associates. Chris was a graphic design faculty member at the University of North Texas and Texas A&M, Commerce. A former president of the DSVC and recipient of the club’s highest lifetime achievement and hall of fame honor, the Golden Egg. Chris was also a consistent sponsor and colorful attendee of the golf tournament.

Paul Jerde Inspiration Scholarship

Also added in 2013 was a new scholarship award in honor of a very influential and appreciated member of the Dallas creative family. Paul Jerde began his career at RSW Creative and quickly established himself as a creative force and a strong member of the DSVC. He went on to become Creative Director at MasonBaronet and an adjunct professor of design at the University of North Texas. As a past president of the DSVC, Paul was a strong supporter and participant in the golf tournament. In June of 2008, while riding his bike home from White Rock Lake, Paul was hit from behind by a vehicle and suffered a severe head injury, three fractured ribs and a punctured lung. As a result of his injuries the DREAM Fund became a caring resource for Paul and his family. His journey since then has been arduous and filled with the still persistent drive of a truly inspirational and creative man.
