More than 500 Texas families lost loved ones to workplace accidents in 2015. This is what drives Texas Mutual to promote safety, so that workplace deaths can be prevented. But if the unthinkable happens and a worker is involved in a catastrophic accident, our commitment extends to their family. It’s one of our most important responsibilities.
One of the ways we support surviving family members is through our scholarship program, which offers scholarships to qualified surviving family members of employees who die from an on-the-job accident.
On April 15, 2013, Morgan Carmichael became one of those whom Texas Mutual supports when her father died in a traffic accident on the job. Watch her story below.
It’s impossible to go back to normal after losing a family member, but it’s our mission to set children and spouses up for success. With a scholarship from Texas Mutual, Morgan is able to go to college without worrying how to pay for her tuition.
Our scholarship program is one of the ways we put our commitment to creating a stronger, safer Texas into action. The Texas Mutual Scholarship Program has distributed $600,390 in college funds to the dependents of catastrophically injured workers since 2001, with more than $85,000 awarded in 2017.
