Started in 1938 by President Knapp, Arbor Day is a tradition that provides an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to join together to beautify the Texas Tech campus, build a sense of community, and receive recognition. Thanks to everyone who helped beautify campus
The final Tech Terry Student Organization of the year was a HUGE success. We met a few of the incoming freshmen who live close by, we took photos with the most interesting man in the world, and we talked about all of the work we have coming up in the next two weeks before finals.
We also took some time to reflect. It was a good year to be a Terry Scholar. It was a good year to give back to Bayless Elementary, to the Relay for Life, and to the State-Wide Service Project. It was also a good year to give back to each other. It was a good year to support each other through the loss of family and friends, through changing dreams, and missed opportunities. It was a good year to celebrate with each other too - in awards and honors, weddings and children, and now with new incoming scholars and a class of graduating scholars. It was a good year to make some amazing memories that will certainly change who we are and maybe even who we become.
Josh Ballard, 2011 scholar, will be the first Terry to graduate from the College of Visual and Preforming Arts and the first Terry to do an Honors thesis project. The production of the Raider Revue was his thesis project and it was phenomenal. Raider Revue was a well done night of entertainment, fun, and surprises.
