Fred L. Phillips, well-known in Shreveport-Bossier City for his loyal business practices, service to his community, philanthropy, and kind heart, passed away in 2021 at age 73.

Fred was a pillar within the oil and gas industry and was proud to be President and CEO of Phillips Energy, Inc. He had a passion for both aviation and paying it forward. His Family is devoted to keeping his spirit of generosity alive and impacting the future of the flying industry.

To honor their patriarch’s legacy, the Phillips Family has established the Fred L. Phillips Aviation Memorial Endowed Scholarship through the Louisiana Tech University Foundation.

The scholarship will be given to its first recipient at the Aviation Festival (AVFEST) Awards Banquet on April 27 on Tech’s Ruston campus. The annual festival hosted by the University’s Department of Professional Aviation is for students, family, faculty, and alumni to gather to celebrate the program, hear about the state of the airline industry, and build relationships with those studying and working in the field.
