The Texas Tech Terry group successfully hosted the first of this year's Leadership Speaking Series when Sally Murray came to tell the story of her late husband and Texas Tech's 8th president, Grover E. Murray. Mrs Murray spoke of Grover with a passion that was extremely contagious to all who were present.
Sally Murray spoke on the horse that can be seen in front of Murray Hall:
Grover Murray compared his presidency to this horse. His work wasn't done, but he was able to accomplish enough to be proud of
Sally Murray also compared this statue to Terry Scholars as individuals. Terry's are given a great foundation through their scholarship, but it is up to every individual scholar to build on that foundation.
Here, Sally Murray is showing a globe which highlights the travels of Grover Murray. Dr. Murray loved to travel and spent a lot of time in Australia in his later years.
