The 2017 – 2018 School year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Terry Scholarship. No matter where they live, Terry Scholars can honor the Terry Legacy and celebrate the growth of our Terry Family by giving back to their communities. We encourage everyone to share their stories of service and to add their service hours to our cumulative total. At the end of June 2018, the Foundation will share the total number of reported service hours for the year. This page will be updated weekly as Terrys submit their hours and stories of service.

Gardner Dudley (UT 1993)- 25 hours contributed to Harvey Relief efforts at Chinquapin Preparatory School.

The School was damaged during Hurricane Harvey and held several volunteer days to help cleanup / rebuild classrooms and other facilities so students could return to school.
