The Tech Terry Scholars are a close-knit community of students motivated to succeed academically & contribute to to the betterment of our community through education & leadership.
In 2011, the first year as a Terry Foundation school, Texas Tech welcomed 18 Terry Scholars. Those students started the Terry Scholar student organization at Texas Tech, including a Leadership Speaker Series. The next year we added 20 to the number and in 2013 TTU had 32 new freshman scholars, plus 24 transfer scholars. That year the first Terry Mentor Program was launched. In 2014 TTU welcomed 36 freshmen and 18 transfer students.
Program growth like this is unprecedented in the program’s 25 year history. The caliber of student applying at Texas Tech is outstanding. We, at Texas Tech, are thrilled to be a part of the Terry Family.
