Maureen M. and T. Lane Wilson

The Honorable T. Lane Wilson (BS ’89, Electrical Engineering; JD ’94) and Maureen McGinn Wilson (BS ’89, Engineering Physics and Applied Mathematics; MS ’94, Engineering and Technology Management) continue to feel gratitude for the caring support they received from scholarship donors during their time at TU. This successful couple supports their alma mater in ways both big and small, hoping that their investments of time and financial resources will create opportunities for those following in their footsteps on TU’s campus.

Maureen Wilson was a talented student who strove for academic excellence and reached that goal time and again, being inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society (serving as president), and Mortar Board Honor Society, in addition to being named a Top Ten Outstanding Senior.

Maureen worked as a computer operator and then as a waitress while attending TU and says she still struggled financially to stay afloat. The Bovaird Scholarship and additional financial aid found for her by Professors Roger Blais and Kenneth Kuenhold were the game-changers that helped her achieve her goals and graduate with a dual degree. After earning a BS in Engineering Physics and Applied Mathematics, she pursued a graduate degree at TU, earning an MS in Engineering and Technology Management.

Maureen has enjoyed a fulfilling and successful career in the fields of engineering and education, teaching courses in physics at The University of Tulsa and at Tulsa Community College after serving in engineering positions at IBM and WilTel/WorldCom.

Lane Wilson was both an exceptional student in the classroom and a letterwinner on the TU Men’s Varsity Tennis Team. He continued to enjoy this sport after he graduated, participating as a member of the United States Tennis Association, and donating his time and talent to serve as a volunteer tennis coach to schoolchildren through the years.

Lane also excelled academically and in extracurricular activities in law school, graduating with honors after serving as the managing editor of the Tulsa Law Review and being inducted into Phi Delta Phi, an international legal honor society.

Lane Wilson launched a diverse and rewarding law career after graduating from the TU College of Law, reaching the level of partner and member of the Board of Directors of the esteemed Tulsa law firm Hall Estill, and serving as a U. S. Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of Oklahoma, before accepting a position as Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Williams in Tulsa.

Lane and Maureen Wilson share a strong commitment to community service, and they have worked together and separately to strengthen community organizations through their generosity and service, including Habitat for Humanity, Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA), Domestic Violence Intervention Services (DVIS), Tulsa Community College Foundation, Tulsa Ballet Theatre, Eisenhower International School Foundation, Crosstown Learning Center, the Women’s Energy Network, the River Parks Foundation, and the Tulsa Community Foundation.

The University of Tulsa has also been the fortunate beneficiary of their time and caring attention, and Lane has served as a member of the Law Dean’s Advisory Board, as president of Friends of Finance, as an ex-officio member of the Collins College of Business Executive Advisory Board, and on the Board of the TU Letterwinner’s Association. Maureen has served as a member of the Industrial Advisory Board for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as chair of the Engineering Physics Advisory Board, and as a board member of the TU Parent and Family Association. The couple’s generosity extends back to 1995, with support for both athletics and academics in the areas of law, business, engineering, and physics.

Lane Wilson was inducted into the TU College of Law Hall of Fame in 2022 in recognition of his exceptional achievements in the field of law and his abiding support of his alma mater. Lane and Maureen Wilson are also recognized as members of TU’s esteemed Chapman Legacy Society, the Circle Society, and the Dean’s Circles of the College of Law and the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences.

Lane and Maureen Wilson’s love of The University of Tulsa was passed along to their children, two of whom followed in their footsteps. Their daughter K. McKenzie Wilson Corley earned a BSBA in Finance in 2018 and is currently pursuing a law degree at TU. Daughter E. Morgan Wilson earned a BSBA in Computer Information Systems and Finance in 2021. Their son, T. Pat Wilson, earned a degree from The University of Pennsylvania.

In 2023, Lane and Maureen Wilson hoped to create scholarship opportunities for future generations of students who would follow in their footsteps on TU’s campus, and they established two scholarship funds: The Honorable T. Lane Wilson and Maureen McGinn Wilson Endowed Scholarship in Law and The Maureen McGinn Wilson and Honorable T. Lane Wilson Endowed Scholarship in Engineering and Natural Sciences.

The University of Tulsa is grateful that Lane and Maureen Wilson continue to hold their alma mater close to their hearts. The TU family looks forward to welcoming Maureen and Lane Wilson Engineering and Natural Sciences Scholars and Lane and Maureen Wilson Law Scholars to our campus for generations to come.
