My name is Austin Crissman and I am graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science. Next year I will be attending Texas Tech University Health Science Center School of Pharmacy to attain a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and a Master in Business Administration. The Terry Scholars have made a profound impact on my educational career by allowing me to attain an undergraduate degree without taking on tremendous debt. This financial help has allowed me to pursue my dream of post-graduate studies in human health. However, being a Terry Scholar goes beyond the financial aspect by giving its students a family environment. Our outstanding advisors, Heather Medley and Stacy Poteet, are always willing to lend a helping hand or words of encouragement. Furthermore, I have been blessed to meet some of the top minds of my generation from across Texas and call them friends. The Terry Foundation has given me an invaluable experience, and I am truly grateful for everything that they do.
