Bix B. Whitcomb was a scholar/athlete at CSU, Chico from 1964-69. Initially he was an English major/Spanish minor. After a year in Spain at the University of Granada, he returned to CSU, Chico and completed both majors, graduating with honors. Mr. Whitcomb believes that no dedicated scholar/athlete should have to work during the academic year. His wish in creating this scholarship is to smooth the pathway for a dedicated, deserving scholar/athlete.
